Katharine’s Bio

I am a current Montessori guide (teacher for 2.5-6 year olds) and working at a private AMI Montessori school and can provide the school contact information as a reference for anyone interested.

I've wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in preschool and started working as a nanny as soon as I got certified back in middle school. I graduated with honors and went to a secondary highschool where I was an education major and worked with children at the local primary schools. I received a Teaching Fellows scholarship and recruited for my early childhood undergraduate degree. I served a number of leadership roles and spent this time working as a nanny for several families in South Carolina.

After getting my state certification to teach PreK-3 in SC, I took a job working as a public first grade teacher. I then decided to get my graduate degree in Montessori education and took the highest level of training possible in Atlanta, GA. I became certified by the Association Montessori Internationale, which is the authentic and most rigorous training in Montessori education, as it was created by Dr. Maria Montessori herself. I am internationally certified and can teach anywhere in the world, but chose to move 10 hours away for a position at an AMI school here in Kentucky as it is the only school of this high quality and accreditation in the state.

I am going on my 4th year living and working here in Lexington and would love to help care or tutor children over the summer. I have an apartment close to the university of Kentucky until my lease ends in September. However, I am slowly moving to my boyfriends house in Berea. I am able to work in any area of Lexington, Richmond, and Berea etc!

I've had experience as a nanny for infants up to children in middle school but have the most experience with children ages 3-5.

I am also extremely passionate about literacy education and did part of my grad school research in psycholinguistics. I've also worked as a tutor for early literacy skills related to reading and writing. I have taken multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham training and worked with children who have dyslexia and other special needs.

I also love animals and have owned and fostered several dogs and cats over the years. I've taught humane education classes and worked with 4 different animal shelters and would be comfortable caring for all animals.
