Cathy has a Bachelor of Science in Education from Clarion University of Pennsylvania where she majored in Secondary Education/Mathematics.  She earned her Master of Science in Education from Wilkes University of Pennsylvania in the area of Classroom Technology.  She is a proud member of the Apple Distinguished Educator Class of 2013.

Cathy is passionate about mathematics education, especially with regard to middle school students.  She has recently started blogging about her classroom experiences with iPads here.  Through her own teaching ventures, as well as coaching and mentoring other teachers, she has developed a library of successful curriculum materials based on students’ needs.  Many of her works are featured here in her online MathyCathy “store” on
