My name is Cathy Kettering. I have 29 years of experience in education. I have taught PreK3-8th grade.I have been married for over 25 years to Mark Kettering and we have two amazing daughters, one son-in-law and one fabulous grandson and a precious new granddaughter.  We have two cute schnauzers named Maci and Molli and a cat named Belle, as well as a fish named George. I enjoy reading historical biographies and romances, playing vocabulary games and puzzles, sketching, painting and drawing and going shopping and eating out with my friends and family. Furthermore, I love learning about new technology and sharing my knowledge with friends, family, students and colleagues.
