Meet the Busy Bee Staff:
Miss Kat, Teacher
My friends call me Miss Kat. I have been with Derry Discovery Days since 2013. I am a wife and mom of a son and a daughter. I enjoy watching my preschoolers grow and sharing that growth with their parents. Outside of teaching I enjoy photography as a side business, traveling, chocolate, and most of all making people smile
I have lived in Hershey for ten years with my husband and three daughters, ages 15, ten and six. Also our two dogs! In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading, photography and family time. I am also involved in Girl Scouts with two of my daughters and became troop leader for my youngest’s troop. Always being around children has now led me to this amazing job!
Miss Laura, Teacher Aide
I have lived in the Hershey area for three years with my husband and two children, ages 12 and 9. I absolutely love this community and look forward to spending time helping the Busy Bees learn and grow. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering in the community, going to the beach with my family, exercising, shopping and cheering on my kids on their sports teams. I have a background in marketing and advertising but my love for children has led me to this wonderful job!
