Catherine grew up in New York City. After graduating from the Horace Mann School, she received a BA in Writing and History from Johns Hopkins University. While she worked at the Park Children’s Day School, she received her Master’s in Early Childhood Education (ages birth through 2nd grade) at the Bank Street College of Education. Also, she recently received her New York State Teaching license. She just completed two years of teaching at the Brooklyn Friends School in the kindergarten program. In her free time, Catherine enjoys cooking, reading, and keeping in touch with her former students. This is Catherine’s first year at WMS, and she is very excited to return to her first love, teaching preschool.
