Cathy Chu is a veteran CDS teacher and parent of alumnus Justin Chu. She is a graduate of the Missouri Montessori Training Program (MOMTEP), and is a certified Montessori teacher (AMS certificate) for ages three to six years. After teaching in another local Montessori educational institution for two years, she returned to CDS in 2009. For Cathy, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of her hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in her students, as she shares her own passion for learning with them. She feels there is always a strong need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. Knowing how important education is at every age and stage of a person’s life, Cathy wants to share her knowledge and passion with others and make a difference in the lives of children.
In her spare time, Cathy enjoys reading, playing tennis, and spending time with friends and family.
