My name is Kate Smith and I am honored to be the 7th-grade homeroom, science, and technology teacher at Notre Dame. As a parochial student myself I find such depth and excitement in the opportunities that Notre Dame offers.
I received my Bachelor's degree from Sacramento State in 2000. I furthered my education by attending National University where I received both my Multiple Subject Credential and my Master’s degree. I taught in the public school sector for almost 5 years before taking a leave of absence to raise my children. During that time I remained in the field by substitute teaching in the Vacaville Unified School District.
In my free time, I spend it revolving around my three children (Ty, Chase, and Reese). As student’s at Notre Dame themselves, I have enjoyed seeing how being a student here is changing and molding their futures. I am extremely passionate about education and believe all children can succeed in becoming lifelong learners in faith and education.
