Mrs. Kathleen Veach

I am currently one of the six 6th grade teachers.  I teach all core subject areas to one of our Face to Face student homerooms.  For the past 6 years, I have been an English Language Arts and Social Studies teachers at Hampton Elementary School.  I am in my 28 th year of my educational career.  Before teaching at Hampton Elementary, I was a teacher, interventionist, and administrator for 20 years in the Monroe County School District in the beautiful Florida Keys.  We recently moved to Fairfax where we are living on our family farm with our dog, and cat.  We enjoy hunting, fishing, and gardening together as a family.  I have been married to my husband, Ryan, for 23 years and we have a 11 year old son who is in the 6th grade at HES.  

I am a HUGE Florida State Seminoles Fan!!!  I graduated from Florida State University  with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education as well as a Bachelors of Science Degree in Childhood Development.  I also received my Masters of Science Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Florida State University.

DREAM

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a young child's mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher - the tools she used
Were books, music and art.
The other, a parent, worked with a guiding hand,
And a gentle, loving heart.
Day after day, the teacher toiled with touch
That was deft and sure,
While the parent labored by her side
And polished and smoothed it o're.
And when at last their task was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought,
For the things they had molded into the child
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And each agreed they would have failed
If each had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school
And behind the teacher, the home.
