Hi! I'm Kathy, I'm a mother to three children, Sunny (2), Harvey (6), and Weston (12).
As a school parent, educator, director and mother for over a decade, I'm familiar with the trials and tribulations of finding the right school in the Bay Area. I can help find the right school for your educational journey.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from San Francisco State University with a minor in human sexuality. I worked in public health with HIV doing testing ,counseling and harm reduction. I also did community outreach to families marginally housed or those close to homelessness. I have always loved being around children and have been teaching in the Bay Area for the last twelve years in both early childhood and K-1 grades.
I received my Master's Degree in Education within early childhood from Mills College in 2009. I also received my multiple subject teaching credential for k-8. During this time I was enriched in constructivist and attachment teaching and fell in love with early childhood education. In 2014 I founded Playschoolsf (see images below) homeschool preschool based on constructivist values, Waldorf influence and attachment teaching. Having taken a pause during the pandemic, I have decided to share my expertise and help families in their school search.
