Bio

Cate worked in several school districts as a special educator and most recently, Title 1 Teacher and Reading Specialist in the Appleton Area School District. Since 2007, Cate has been an active reading faculty member and involved in various community organizations. She enjoys working closely with area schools through the Central Wisconsin Reading Council (CWRC) and various partnerships, specifically the P.A.W.s Literacy lab housed in St. Stanislaus Elementary School. The lab is home to EDUC 302: Methods and Materials for Teaching Reading I. This type of situated learning environment offers Cate and preservice teachers a place to discuss, share, and apply best literacy practices among elementary students and teachers.
