  1. Ms. Kat! I just found your website and wanted to say my two youngest boys love you. Even my first grader remembers Ms. Kat. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the kids in our community and at Covenant Preschool.

  2. Thank you. Tara! You have a super-sweet bunch of little boys, and I enjoy them just as much. And I was just thinking of your 1st grader when planning my lesson this week — he LOVED the last line of the Five Little Pumpkins, when they “rolled out of sight!” 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness!! I’m blown away at your talent. It’s great to sit next to you at ACWE!! Maybe I can learn a thing or two.
