Kathy Bernat is enthusiastic to bring her years of teaching Language Arts and Social Studies to the vision and students here at Fusion Academy in Los Gatos. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies from Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, and her Master of Arts degree in Education and secondary teaching credential in Social Science from Stanford University. Teaching at Redwood Middle School in Saratoga and R.J. Fisher Middle School in Los Gatos, Kathy is also raising her three children here and has volunteered in many capacities at the elementary school. Committed to serving families in this community and thrilled by the opportunity to serve in this innovative educational setting, Kathy, who believes her innate curiosity makes her an excellent fit for teaching, makes it a priority to hike on the beautiful Los Gatos trails and bond with friends over a good cup of java at a local coffee house. In her “other” life, she dreams of being a back-up singer in a pop/rock band!
