Hi, my name is Katherine DeLaRosa. I am originally from this area, born and raised in Woodinville. I went to Western Washington University and got my degree in Developmental Psychology. I earned my Montessori Certificate from Meipn in 2014. I have been working with children in a school setting for 14 years.
I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was a little girl, and I love working with children. I also love Montessori. It is wonderful to provide children with a rich environment filled with many learning materials to choose from, so they can grow and flourish at their own pace. It is exciting to guide each student on their educational journey. In my spare time, I love to sing in a choir, go running, and spend time with my Husband Peter and our puppy, Sammy. I’m excited to join and serve A Child’s Journey Community and look forward to a great year.
