Hello, my name is Kathy Dwyer. I teach 7th Grade Science. This is the 6th year that I have been working at STEM School Highlands Ranch.When I started at STEM, I worked part time in Learning Support Services for two years. I returned to teaching in the classroom full time in 2016.
I am originally from Australia and taught Middle and HIgh School for eleven years. I moved to Colorado in 2003 with my husband and children.
My husband has his own IT consulting business. We have four children ages 26, 24, 17 and 13 - boy, girl, girl, boy. Two of my children were born in Australia and two were born in the USA. My oldest works in the financial department at a leading bank and is working on his IT degree. My second returned last year from playing soccer in Germany for 2 years and is preparing to complete her Biology degree and play soccer again for her college for her Senior year. My third child is a Junior in High School and is currently trialing for soccer with some universities that she would like to attend. She would like to be a pediatric surgeon. My youngest is in 7th grade and loves to play all kinds of sports.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband and family who all play soccer. I love watching all of their games. My husband and I play volleyball. We all love to spend time in the mountains - hiking, camping, skiing .... We love to get out paddleboarding and ll water sports as well. The beach is my happy place as are the mountains!
I love working at STEM and I love teaching 7th Grade Science at STEM School Highlands Ranch.
