Kathryn Kao is a part of the MBS Middle School History Department. Kathryn holds a B.A. in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History from Brandeis University, an M.F.A. in Musical Theater Writing from N.Y.U., and an M.Ed. in Museum Education/Childhood from Bank Street College of Education. Her most recent experience was at Notre Dame Academy, where she was a 7th and 8th grade Social Studies teacher. Kathryn loves middle school education because “it’s an age where they’re figuring out who they are as students and as people—and that process is difficult and messy for everyone...where students know you don’t stop caring about them just because they’re not on your roster anymore...”
