Catrina is excited to be a part of Peachtree Learning Center as a teacher for the American Girl Historical Class II. While growing up as a child of educators north of Chattanooga, she developed a life-long love of history that began with walking down the halls of her elementary school carrying stacks of biographies to take home to read, helping her dad grade his junior high history classes’ test papers, and making frequent visits to the Chickamauga Battlefield National Park. Her background is diverse and includes painting, drawing, ceramics, needlework, calligraphy, writing, and medicine. She feels very blessed to have worked for many years with children of all ages. She is especially thankful that she is able to homeschool her own three young daughters, who also happen to enjoy American Girl dolls themselves. She has been involved in Community Bible Study (CBS) for the last ten years and the Upper Cumberland Christian Co-Op for going on three years now. She loves interacting with the children as she watches them learn and grow. While focusing on the American Girl historical dolls and what their lives were like during their time periods, she hopes to help bring history to life and desires that they will become aware of God’s providential hand which is evident throughout history.
