Ms. Cathy, Nest Head Teacher

Cathy originates from Sligo in Ireland and received her Montessori Training in Galway from St. Nicholas Montessori College in Dublin. She has worked in Montessori schools and with children for the past 17 years in Ireland, Chicago and Grand Cayman.  Cathy has extensive experience with the Casa age group, however as one of the founding teachers to start the Nest programme, she loves working with the youngest students and teaching them to explore their world.

She has worked extensively with the Casa class as well, and feel it is important to incorporate the Montessori philosophy to follow the natural development of each child as an individual, and tailor the programme accordingly. Cathy and her husband Ger moved to Grand Cayman in 2005 and have four amazing children, Cormac, Maeve, Emer and Sean. Whenever they have free time, they love spending time on the beach.
