Originally from El Paso, Texas, Cathy has been teaching at ARE since 2007. A favorite part of teaching at ARE for Cathy is helping students find something they are really good at. She wants all of her students to shine and come to school every day and share their knowledge! When not in the classroom Cathy can be found running, hiking, watching movies and eating a great dessert! Her favorite book is The Old Man and the Afternoon Cat by Michaela Muntan. One fun fact about Cathy is that she is an official Walt Disney World cast member and completed an internship in Orlando for 7 months while in college!
