Hi, my name is Ms. Kate and I am the part-time Teaching and Learning Coach (TLC) at Buena Vista. This will be my 11th year in education and my 4th year at Buena Vista. 

I hold a bachelor's degree in Health, Wellness and Promotion from Eastern Washington University and a master's degree in Special Education from Texas State University.   

When I am not working, I am busy spending time with my family.  We are an active family and like spending time outdoors.
