  Ms Cathy   Wee Learners   Cathy began her teaching career at Aemilian. She stepped away to raise her sons and took a teaching position in MPS. In 2013 she returned “home” to Aemilian’s and has found her happy place: in a classroom with the 2 year olds. She enjoys the energy and excitement in each day and  marvels at the learning and growing that unfolds before her eyes. When she’s away from school Cathy likes taking walks with her silly dog, meeting friends for tea, Scrabble or cribbage matches, sampling a few cookies- warm from the oven, and getting FaceTime visits with her new granddaughter.
