Kate Stewart

My name is Kate Stewart and I am one of six reading specialists here at EMES.  This is my seventh year as a Title I reading specialist.  I taught first grade for five years and second grade for two years.  I love being at EMES because I grew up in this community!  

I attended Shawsville High and Eastern Montgomery High before pursuing a degree in education at Emory & Henry College.  While at Emory, I participated in college basketball and tennis.  Go Wasps!

After graduating from Emory & Henry, I worked on a master's degree in reading from Radford University.  

My husband, Brennan, and I have 3 boys.  When not at school, I enjoy sports, exercising, and spending time with my family.  

If I can give parents and families any advice, it would be to read with your children as much as possible and have conversations with them at a young age.  Their brains are constantly developing and changing and we want to begin enrichment from the start.
