About Kathy

A little bit about my background for you . . .

I have 30+ years in education. Prior to coming to Barton in 2007 I spent seven years
teaching teachers through the Curriculum and Instruction Department for
Minneapolis Public Schools – primarily in science, but also in literacy.
Prior to my tenure with Curriculum and Instruction I was the
Teacher-in-Residence for the Bakken Museum for one year after many years
as a 4th – 6th grade teacher at Marcy Open School in SE Mpls. I also
taught at a Montessori School and in rural MN early in my career.

My passion is teaching science. I find that curious minds exploring and
learning about the natural world is as good as it gets.

My energy goes into cultivating curiosity, creativity, and critical
thinking in my students as we engage in the challenging work of serious
learning together. I work to share learning experiences with Barton
students that will help them see and feel the world through of the eye
of an artist, the curiosity of a scientist, the insight of a reader and
writer, and the precision of a mathematician.

You are always welcome as a visitor in 204 – whether as a volunteer, an
“expert” with something to share, or a casual visitor.
