Classroom teacher, department chair, instructional coach, and K-12 director of mathematics are only a few of the roles Kay has held during her 25 years in education. With a B.A. in Elementary Education and a B.S. in Secondary Mathematics Education and an M.A. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. Kay has been playing the classroom hokey-pokey by spending time outside the classroom and repeated returns to the classroom and has shown her commitment to professional learning and by incorporating lessons learned into the classroom. She has been involved with CMP since the first edition and continues to use the resources with her students. As much as she enjoys teaching and learning, Kay also loves live music, football, good friends and spending time with her family. Her favorite “down time” location is the back porch of her parents home in the Texas Hill Country.
