Katy Morris, Teacher
I started working with kids in 1996, my sister and I had our own babysitting business. I wanted to work with kids because I had a kindergarten teacher who inspired me to want to do what she did because she was so kind and loving and I knew that I wanted to be that person for someone else one day. I started with TTT in 2018. I love watching kids learn and grow and being there to see them reach their milestones.
When I am not working with kids I am going to Giants games, Sharks games, reading, baking, walking or spending time with family. I have 37 ECE units, my AS in Child Development and my Certificate in ECE.
I am CPR/First Aid certified.
