- Community Schools
My name is Kathy Willyard and the 2017-2018 school year will be my fifth year teaching preschool at Alpine. I moved to the St. Vrain Valley School district in 1986 from Southern California and am a Longmont High School alumni. I started working with preschool students as a teaching assistant at the Tiny Tim Center in 1997. Knowing that I wanted to teach this young population of students, I started my education in early childhood at Front Range Community College and completed my teaching degree in early childhood in 2011 and my Master’s degree in education focusing on early childhood special education in 2015 from Regis University. It is my hope to create a loving, exciting environment for my students to learn and develop a love for learning along with understanding and accepting of the differences that we all have.
My husband, Tim, and I have two teenage boys. Danny is 20 and is currently working on a criminal justice degree at Front Range, and Andrew is a football playing, choir singing 17 year old who keeps us busy. In my spare time I love watching my kids play sports and sing, camping with my family, and baking.
