What parents and educators say about Kathy:

She is a wealth of knowledge and parents always leave feeling like they have actual tools, not just theories. She is willing to really listen to the needs of parents. We hope to continue learning from her!” – Lena Garcia, Teacher and Curriculum Coordinator, The Knowing Garden Community Elementary School
