CAT HAZELTON  Librarian & Media Specialist

Librarian & Media Specialist

Cat Hazelton

Catherine is thrilled to be able to share her passion for life-long learning and literacy with Midtown Montessori students. After becoming a parent Cat felt compelled to use her talents and professional skills to make more of an impact in her community, resulting in a career change from the IT industry to librarianship. Establishing and maintaining the library program for the children at MMS is a source of great joy and purpose for her. She values the children’s candor, admires their curiosity, and cherishes their earnest perspectives. Working with children gives Cat an opportunity to make an impact that will outlast her. By supporting a peaceful learning environment that respects the natural learning process of children, Cat believes she can contribute, in some measure, to a better tomorrow.
