Hello! My name is Kathleen Lacey and I have been in education for 32 years in Kansas City, MO, China, and Hong Kong. I am an AMI certified elementary classroom teacher trained through Washington Montessori Institute in 1994. I have a Master’s in Education from Loyola College in Maryland. I have enjoyed my years in education guiding children through their learning journey. I love that Montessori allows the children the freedom to explore and make creative choices in their learning. Outside of the classroom I delight in spending time with my family and friends. I also spend time traveling, reading, hiking, camping, and a relaxing evening at home. GO CHIEFS!
