Hello! My name is Kathy Rather. I am a graduate of Central Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Elementary Education. I have been an early childhood educator for 36 years. I started my teaching career as a kindergarten teacher in Memphis, Tennessee. Later, I moved to Loudoun County and taught first grade for 19 years. This will be my fifth year teaching kindergarten at Moorefield Station and I couldn't be more thrilled! I feel that working with young children and their parents is an honor and a privilege. Get ready, Kindergartners... A wonderful year of learning is in store for you!
