St. Catherine of Siena School
From Our Principal
You may remember that we split the music position, with Ms. Catherine Kauffmann teaching 4 th -8 th grade music and 7 th /8 th grade English Language Arts (the same subjects she taught at her former school). Over the last several weeks, we've been looking for candidates to fill the primary music position, and we are excited to report that we have officially filled it! Mrs. Nicole Ross will be teaching PreK-3 rd gr. music next year. Nicole has an extensive musical background, including a Bachelor's degree in music and her own professional performance experience in New York. For the last several years, she has been an Early Childhood Music Specialist at several local preschools and community centers. Nicole and her family live in the area and are friends with other school families, so I'm sure many of you know her already! Please help us welcome Nicole Ross to St. Catherine!
In addition, we are excited to announce that we have hired Ms. Molly Moore as a new library & technology specialist. Molly holds a Master's degree in Library and Information Science and Bachelor's in both History & English. She has worked as a library technician for several organizations, including the University of Washington. Molly also volunteered as an English teacher in Rwanda, and served on the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Not only will Molly be our school librarian, but she will also provide tech support and help us to strengthen our technology program and integrated classrooms applications. As a former St. Catherine student herself, she is thrilled to be back here as a member of our school staff!
With this latest round of hiring, all staff positions are now filled. I am so excited to work our team of teachers and staff next year! Thank you for helping me to welcome them in the fall. Have a great summer!
