My name is Kathy Pretell. I am originally from Moab, Utah. I graduated from Utah State University with my degree in elementary education and a minor in science. I'm married to a wonderful man, Anderson, and we have two kids. As a child, I grew up hiking and playing in the red rock desert. I am the middle child in a large family. My father was a science teacher in Moab for thirty years. From his experience in teaching, I developed a love for both teaching and hands-on science. I speak both English and Spanish. I love inspiring kids to learn and developing their talents in their unique interests. My hobbies include hiking, playing piano, drawing, traveling to new places, and gardening.
