Welcome to LEAP (Learn-Explore-Achieve-Program)/Tadpoles for the 2018-2019 school year!
My name is Kathy Seter and I am so blessed to be the LEAP/Tadpoles coordinator/teacher. This is my 13th year at Sacred Heart Academy. I received my undergraduate degree at California State University, Fullerton and completed my post-graduate education at the University of California, Riverside. In addition, I received my Certification in the Education of the Gifted and Talented from UCR in December 2014. Prior to SHA, I was employed by the Redlands Unified School District as the 4th-5th grade Intervention teacher at Lugonia Elementary School and as a substititue teacher throughout the district grades K-12, including Special Education and RISE (Redlands Independent Study Education) program. I am also a member of the California Association for the Gifted (CAG), "an organization of educators and parents who strive to improve education for individuals who demonstrate giftedness."
I was blessed to attend Catholic schools (St. Margaret Mary, Chino and Pomona Catholic Girls High Scool) and strongly believe in the value of a faith-filled education. I have been a proud Catholic school parent since 1996. My son, Jimmy, is an SHA, Aquinas High School, Marquette University graduate. My daughter, Elizabeth, is an SHA and Aquinas High School graduate, currently attending Grand Canyon University.
I am an active member of The Holy Name of Jesus community and enjoy various activities: sporting events, reading, concerts, movies, travel, and time with family and friends.
Under the direction of our principal Mrs. Williams LEAP was launched in the Fall of 2012. LEAP is a hands-on, enrichment math program for grades 2-6. I am excited to take on this venture to provide our students with the best possible education in a faith-filled environment.
