My Name is Catherine Kress, but I have been  called Kress since I was two.  I was born in Mobile, Alabama and raised in Hazard, Kentucky.

I had a great adventure as a young adult when I divided my time between New York City and London, England.  London will always have a special place in my heart because I was blessed with the birth of my daughter, Annalee, who is now 16 years old.

I started working in Madison City First Class Pre-k in January of 2017. I am delighted to be here and to work in a school surrounded by inspiring colleagues and leaders.  I treasure experiencing the wonders of the world through your children's eyes.  I love splashing in water puddles, watching clouds change shapes, picking dandelions, and experimenting with water colors.

 My goal is to support our children's growth in developmentally appropriate ways, and to continually grow and improve my practice of teaching.
