Funny Teaching Story:

“There have been many but my favorite from this year involves one of my twos who relayed to his mommy that Miss Kathleen & I were “nice girls”.  At my age I was more than tickled to be called a “girl” for any reason!

Funny teaching story:

A sweet story of a tender heart.. One day a boy in class noticed I had on a bandaid. After explaining I hurt my finger, I showed him the picture. It was a “Hilltop” bandaid with a picture of Jesus and a lamb. He carefully studied the picture, then quickly kissed it!

When she’s not at Hilltop, you can find Miss Kathleen….

Miss Kathleen enjoys knitting and exercising as well as bike riding with her family.
