ATLE Board Appoints Cathy King As New Executive Director Elect

Cathy has spent over 20 years developing innovative education programs to support a variety of learning communities. A self-professed science and ‘ed tech geek’, Cathy thrives on building partnerships and collaborations to help propel learning communities forward.  Through her extensive leadership and organizational development training, Cathy parlays both her practical program development experience and trademark enthusiasm into actionable strategies. The real catalyst for Cathy though, is being part of making education engaging and “fun” for her son in ways it never was for her. Cathy’s broad background supports her diverse passions and interests - everything from pastoral care to track and field to the quest for original Star Wars collectibles. 

When not passionately involved in educational developments you can find Cathy, her husband, son and two dogs out enjoying the great outdoors either camping, hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, and skiing or playing baseball, tennis, and soccer. Cathy also enjoys global travel and music with her son, jamming on the piano while he riffs on his tenor sax. 

"I am honored to accept the pass of the baton from Doug Dietz.  I know I have big shoes to fill! I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new friends as we continue to grow ATLE for the future."
