Mrs. Kate has come many times to our school for Red Ribbon Week and other motivational assemblies. Her performances are uplifting, interactive, and send messages that I want all of our students to hear. For instance, her song "I like Bein' Clean" resounds in the students' brains and I'm sure will be remembered when they are approached to do drugs and can say "No, I'd rather be clean". The motivational songs, like "Crack a Book" encourages students to seek knowledge. And her Florida folksongs are an asset to the science lessons about Florida wildlife and conservation.
Mostly, it's about her love of music and children. And what a happy mix - that we all benefit from.
