The 2017-18 School Year is Going to be GREAT!
Hello! My name is Catherine Rutkoski and I am a kindergarten teacher at Valley View Elementary School. This is my 17th year teaching here at Valley View, but this is my 22nd year teaching kindergarten. I have also taught one year each of first and second grades and was a school librarian for one year. I live in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania with my husband, Joe, and two daughters, Tamara and MaryJo. I also have a black lab/boxer mix named Betsy. When not thinking about kindergarten, which isn't often, I enjoy reading, baking, trying new recipes, spending time with my family and all things Disney (especially Pluto)!
Kindergarten is a very special and important year in every child's education. It is where the seeds of curiosity and learning are planted. I am so excited to share this wonderful experience with my students. It is my goal to help each of my students develop to their fullest potential and, above all, see school as a fun, exciting place to be!
