Catie Stone has been a lead teacher in the toddler classroom since Fall 2008, working with children ages 1-3 years old. She worked as a student-staff member for a few years previous to becoming a lead teacher. Catie graduated from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 2006 with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education with minors in Language Arts and Social Studies. In 2008, Catie completed her Masters Degree in Special Education with a concentration in Learning Disabilities.

Catie was married in 2010 and she and her husband adopted a rescue dog that keeps them very busy! She and her sister enjoy teaching down the hall from each other and still find it hard to believe they are teaching at the same center they attended preschool!
