Tell us why you chose "Something Else"

Because the teaching field is ever-evolving, ever-growing, and I would love to offer the ability to provide my peers a learning space to explore this journey. 
I'll be you wanted specifics, huh? 
Mindfulness, Avoiding Burn-out, Collaboration, Building Relationships, Advocacy...

Who are you?

Hey! I'm Kate! 
I'm an edu-nerd, who digs learning about teaching and really enjoy assisting teachers with support in their practice.

What led you to education?

I wanted to experience the light-bulb moment that I saw in children making connections.  It's an awesome return in this work.

What do you have a knack for? How did you find that out?

I have a knack for making people laugh.  I found that out at a young age.  I would engage the energy around me and look for ways to get my audience engaged!  No surprise, I can be a bit of a ham, but it's because of the satisfaction I feel after establishing an emotional connection with others.

What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?

  • Learning. 
  • Sustainability. 
  • Gardening. 
  • Amazing women. 
  • My son. 


Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?

You can catch me on the trails (running in the early am), hiking in the afternoon with the family, eating a solid burger or biking to our favorite brewery!  

What would be impossible for you to give up?

  • I want to say cheese here.  Does that make me shallow? 
  • Or sarcasm.  It's my second language. 
  • Impossible?  Cuddling with my boys. Live for it
