Something I especially enjoy about being a YCC teacher is...
“…the way young children live authentically and focus on the here and now. I am endlessly grateful to share in small moments like marveling at an unexpected earthworm, or laughing together during a silly song each day. Young children’s honesty and appreciation for the world around them is infectious and is one of the things I love most about being a YCC teacher.”
Kate is originally from New York state, where she’s thoroughly enjoyed both the busy city life, as well as the laid back upstate pace. Her dog, Beacon, is named after one of her favorite towns to visit! While in New York, Kate worked in Montessori education as a Nido guide for children as young as 3 months, up to 18 months, and as an Assistant in a Young Children’s Community. What Kate loves the most about the Montessori philosophy is its person-centered approach. She is very interested in understanding how to create environments that best promote independence, community, and respect, especially for both our very young and our elders.
While not at CMS, Kate enjoys painting, hiking with her dog, and learning all about the large variety of plants and animals in Maryland.
