Kay graduated from the University of New Mexico with her Bachelor of Science in Education (BSE), with a minor in Special Education and a Language Arts certification. She taught 2nd and 3rd grade in Albuquerque Public School for 8 years. After moving to Texas, Kay taught Pre-K for several years, and then homeschooled her youngest daughter from 3rd grade through graduation. During this time, Kay enjoyed the opportunity to teach a variety of subjects to students of all ages through homeschool co-ops.
Kay has been blessed to have been married to her husband, Gary, for 36 years. They have raised two grown daughters, Amy and Alyssa, and son-in-law, Mike. Kay and Gary attend Southern Hills Baptist Church in Round Rock, where she works in the women’s ministry. She loves traveling, reading, writing, and doing arts and crafts.
Kay is delighted to be at ACS. God has provided her with the desire of her heart, which was to get back into a classroom. She finds the blended model of teaching 2 days at home and 2 days at school an excellent approach to homeschooling. She appreciates the Classical Model, with it’s emphasis on integrating the subjects, while recognizing God’s hand in shaping what and how we learn. Her prayer is that the students in her classroom will experience a love for God and all the He has given us in literature, history, mathematics, and the arts and sciences.
