My name is Kathy Willyard and the 2019-2020 school year will be my sixth 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 been married for 27 years and have two boys; Danny is 22 and Andrew is 19. In my spare time I love watching my kids play sports and sing, camping with my family, and baking.
I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
