Kathleen Cadena

Educational Assistant 

My name is Kathleen Cadena and I love adventure and outdoor activities, Baking is what I enjoy to do for my family. I am married with three children whom keep me busy. I have always enjoyed working with children in all my past career endeavors, My first experience was as a ski instructor for 3 to 6 year olds, This program focused on childhood development. Later I would move on to working in a Dental office which I taught and did dental x­rays and cleanings for children for 12 years. I started my career in Education and became an Educational Assistant and Job Coach since 2007. I worked with the Exceptional Programs all students including special needs. My job included working with each student in their daily curriculum whether it was art, math, music and pe. Assisting students in finding jobs in the community was very rewarding for me. Swimming, biking and hiking were just a few of the activities that I have shared with the children I taught.
