My name is Kate Leary and I am the new Instructional Coach at TJMS this year. I am super excited to be a part of the staff at TJ and look forward to working with all the teachers and getting to know as many students as possible!!I have worked in the Jefferson City School District at Lewis and Clark Middle School since 2000 and taught 7th grade Science all but one of those years. During the 2015-16 school year, I was out of my classroom and participated in mentoring two teachers in the University of Missouri Fellows Program.I earned my Bachelor of Science degree at Michigan State University, my Master of Science degree from Boise State University, and my teaching certification from Lincoln University. In 2010, I became a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent Science.Away from school, I enjoy time with my family. My husband, Alan, is a biologist for the Missouri Department of Conservation. Our son, Zach, is in 9th grade and our daughter, Cassie, is in 6th grade. We also have an awesome Brittany who is my husband's hunting dog and all-around hilarious family pet! The five of us enjoy time hiking and going non-stop to sporting events like soccer, basketball, swimming and ice skating!
