About Ms. Kate

Hey!

I'm Ms. Kate Renfrow and this will be my second year as an 8th grade teacher at KEY Academy! A little background information on me; I was born and raised in San Jose, California. After high school I went to Sonoma State University to study child development. I graduated in 2015 and went on to received my teaching credentials along with my Master’s degree at San Jose State University in May 2017. I love working with children and seeing them follow their goals in life to become successful adults. I am very excited to get to know and work with my students this year! It is an exciting year with many fun things planned!
