Ms. Kathleen Devlin
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I'm so happy to be back with in person teaching and to be a member of the awesome Jeannette Rankin staff. I began my career 27 years ago at Cold Springs in first grade and feel incredibly blessed to be back. I know this year is going to be a learning experience for all of us - teaching and learning in a pandemic - but together we can make this a great first grade year for your child. The joy and wonder of learning doesn't stop, even in these unusual times, and for that I am grateful!
A little bit about me...I am a Montana native and received my undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Montana. I received my National Board Certification in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy in 2008. I have spent most of my career at MCPS, most recently teaching second grade at Franklin School.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family hiking, camping, skiing, and boating and swimming in our beautiful lakes and rivers. I feel so lucky to live in Montana, teaching such fun, bright children and getting to know their families. Enjoy this school year watching your children learn and grow. They are a gift.
