Kathleen is a native Texan who has recently returned home after living in many states and is thrilled to be close to her family again. She has a B.A. in geography & cartography from the University of Kentucky and a M.Ed. in secondary social science from the University of Montevallo in Alabama. In addition to teaching, Kathleen has worked as a free-lance cartographer, a tutor, a mentor and a mom and has loved every minute of each one! She is passionate about education and spent 10 years teaching geography to 7th graders where one of her favorite memories is the 6 years coaching students involved in JUNA (Junior United Nations Assembly of Alabama) where students learn to research, write and present resolutions on global issues while learning the importance of diplomacy in the world.
In her free time, Kathleen loves watching SEC football, especially Auburn University, (War Eagle!) and UK basketball (#BBN). Her favorite way to relax is to sip coffee at sunrise on the beach in Perdido Key, Florida, her favorite vacation spot!
