Kathi Luster, Kindergarten

Hi! Welcome to my page.

The 2015-2016 school year will be my 33rd year of teaching. I have taught at Kendall for 25 years. I have taught 2nd generation students for the past 9 years. 

I hear all the time about teachers getting "burned out" and I don't understand it. I LOVE teaching kindergarten! Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for career that I have chosen and the job that I have.

I have high expectations for my students and they usually meet and exceed them. I love that they come in not even knowing alphabet letters and in a few months they are actually reading. I still cry every time a child decodes his/her first word. There is no greater job in the world. 

A few fun facts about me:

1. I live in the mountains and absolutely love it!

2. I am very active in my church, our Lady of the Lake in Lake Arrowhead, and sing in the choir. 

3. I am an avid reader!

4. I LOVE to travel and have traveled all over the world. 

5. I bowl three nights a week. 

6. I hold a brown belt in Tang Soo Do karate.

7. I used to write a weekly education column for a local newspaper.
