Ms. Kathleen Devlin

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. I'm so happy to be back with a regular school schedule and to be a member of the awesome Jeannette Rankin staff. I began my career 29 years ago at Cold Springs in first grade and feel incredibly blessed to be back and in my second year at JRE.  This year is again 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, 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.
