Kathy is the Administrative Coordinator at Lake Hills Montessori. I was born in Illinois and remained there until I married. I have lived in Puerto Rico, CT, FL, NJ, TN, LA, and for the past 30+ years I have been in Texas. My husband and I have been foster parents in several States and have always loved being with children. I have worked in the education field for the past 35 years. I began in a classroom for special needs and then spent over 25 years at a facility for individuals with autism. My eldest daughter is an AMS/AMI certified teacher so I have been learning about Maria Montessori for a long time. When I moved to Austin 13 years ago, my grand-children were enrolled at Lake Hills Montessori. I learned they were looking for substitutes, and so began my career with LHM! I have worked here as a substitute, primary classroom assistant, extended work-day assistant, and for the past 9 years have worked as Administrative Coordinator. I enjoy connecting with the children and learn something from them every day. I am married, have three children and seven grand-children. I love spending time with family; I enjoy travel, going to the movies and reading.
