Kathleen joined the teaching staff at Holy Family School in 2019, but she has volunteered at the St Francis Center for over a decade for the Christmas Toy Program and some ESL tutoring. Kathleen had a prior career working with the Cardiac Surgery team at UCSF and Sequoia Hospitals. She then followed her true heart and started teaching Middle School Science at St Raymond Elementary School, Menlo Park for 10 years. She also taught Religious education at St Raymond Church for 15 years. Kathleen currently teaches both science and religion to all the students at Holy Family School.
Kathleen attended University of California, Los Angeles (Go Bruins!) with a BS in Neurobiology, and also obtained a Graduate degree from Stanford University (Go Cardinal!).
Kathleen hopes to bring enthusiasm, passion, rigor, and fun to her students. She is astounded and impressed with her students' love of learning each and every day. She is honored to have the privilege of serving this special community that Sister Christina has formed.
She has lived in the area for many years with her husband and they have raised 3 children and 2 therapy pups together. Kathleen finds herself fortunate to have Faith, Family, and Friends present in her life….and especially Holy Family School.
