Miss Kathie

Miss Kathie is our Co-Teacher for the Preschool Tue/Thur class. Miss Kathie comes to us with a wealth of experience. She has lived in Brentwood for over 24 years. She has 3 boys and 2 grandbabies. We are so fortunate that Miss Kathie brings her more than 16 years of preschool experience with her! Away from preschool, she loves any outdoor activities, reading, family time, playing with her grandkids, traveling, and trying to things. And of course, she is also CPR/ first aide trained, background checked, and has completed all the required trainings to be left with your child.
