Hi, I'm Mrs. Cathcart, and I love to teach! I have been teaching since 1992. Over the years, I have taught classes from Kindergarten to Grade 6 and have been a Literacy Coach and a Math Coach. I believe that an engaging classroom that meets the individual learning needs of all is the key to allowing every student to succeed.
I love to travel and have been lucky enough to visit 9 provinces and 49 states. I have also enjoyed travelling to Europe and can't wait to go back. I am a big fan of the Toronto Blue Jays, and love seeing them play in Toronto. I also enjoy Sunday afternoons watching NFL football in the fall and winter.
I have two adult daughters who I love to visit. One lives in Florida and one in Toronto, so visiting often involves some travelling.
Where we are!
Barrie, Ontario is a fast-growing city of over 187,000 people located about 90km north of Toronto. We are the 21st largest city in Canada. We have a beautiful lakeshore with lots of room for playing and walking. The Spirit Catcher sculpture, which is pictured at the top of this page, is a popular spot for pictures and a meeting place on the shore of Kempenfelt Bay in downtown Barrie.
