Meet Kathy

I am a mother of four children and a granddaughter.  I love children of all ages and have 34 years of experience in working with children.  My daughter is 34 years old, married and lives in Houston working as a Special Ed teacher for pre-school.  My oldest son graduated from Stanford University in Calif. in 2013 with a double BS in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science and holds the 3rd all time distance record for the javelin there. He now works with McKinsey and Company in Palo Alto, CA.. My middle son is a sophomore at Lehigh University for business and is also on the track team.  My youngest son is in high school and runs the 400 meter hurdles.  I have lived in Westchester, NY for 27 years and presently reside in Lake Worth,FL.. I am a commercial pilot by trade and flew 747's for United Airlines for 12 years Read more until I retired to be a stay at home mom and be with my children full time.  I have a BS in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Ridle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach,Fl.  As much as I loved flying and the many experiences it provided my, my true passion is working with children and the satisfaction of knowing you have earned their trust and love in doing a job well done.   My children have grown up and are moving on with their lives as they should. I would love to find a family that could use my vast experience in child care from infants to teens. I enjoy sharing the many wonders of life and watching a child experience learning beyond the classroom whether through it being outdoors, athletics, the arts and sciences, cooking or traveling and learning of new and different cultures. I am a very capable, moral, ethical, hardworking, interesting, active, loving and fun person. I am excited to find a family that understands what I bring in experience and we can share the joy and responsibility of raising a child together.
