“Seek opportunities to show you care. The smallest gestures often make the biggest difference.”
― John Wooden
Mrs. Kathy Faber began teaching kindergarten in 1983-1989 right here in Pagosa Springs. She and her husband, Mark, moved for his job and were away for five years. During that time Kathy had such fun caring for her own three children and teaching off and on in several towns across Colorado. They were able to move back in 1994 and she has been teaching kindergarten in Pagosa Springs since that time.
Kathy loves teaching kindergarten and learning and growing with the children. She hones her craft more each year. She is incredibly privileged to be able to help young children love school and learning. The classes she has taken and educational pursuits she has been involved with have helped her to achieve this goal.
Mark and Kathy are the Children’s Ministry Directors at their church. This has given them amazing opportunities to learn with and from children of all ages from nursery age to teenagers.
Kathy is young at heart. She remembers telling herself at a young age, “I promise I will never forget what it feels like to be a kid!” Being in kindergarten all these years have helped her with this promise. She realizes what a big world school is for young students and does her best to help them navigate through each day.
Kathy and Mark are so thankful for their own three children and the amazing adults they have become. Ty is a plumber, hunter, and fisherman. Kari Beth teaches first grade in Phoenix, and Jacob designs for fashion in New York City.
