Kat McCall-Petke : Oakleaves Teacher (Kinder)

I grew up in the Columbia River Gorge on 100 acres of forestland, which contained many old growth trees, and I have always loved the outdoors. I am joyfully married and have three children. My oldest son has left home and currently lives in Georgia serving in the Army. My daughter and youngest son will be joining the Springwater community with me. This will be my 20th year as a certified teacher and my 27th year working in the field of education. In addition to my deep affinity for the great outdoors, I love arts and crafts. My current passions are watercolor painting and needle felting. I deeply value the gifts and skills of all children, there is something magical about Kindergarten and I can’t wait for the year to begin!
