KATHERINE GERRITS, TEACHER

Katherine Gerrits received a BS in Human Development and Family Studies with an emphasis in Early Childhood from Colorado State University. Later, Katherine moved back to Milwaukee and became certified in Elementary Education 1-8 at Cardinal Stritch University. Since then, Katherine has worked in several preschools in the Milwaukee Area, most recently at North Shore Children’s Center in River Hills & Mequon Preschool. Katherine is very excited to begin teaching at Bright Beginnings Preschool for the 2015-2016 school year. Katherine feels that the most important thing about teaching preschool is creating an environment where each child has the opportunity to grow, and learn in a safe and nurturing classroom. Katherine cannot wait to begin learning with your child!

AMY LOOMIS, TEACHER AIDE
Amy has a degree in Physical Therapy from Northeastern University. She worked in Milwaukee and Seattle before staying home with her four children. Amy has volunteered for Atwater school and has served as a substitute teacher’s aide in the district as well as Bright Beginnings. Amy is thrilled to be teaching at Bright Beginnings this year where two of her children attended preschool.
