Welcome! My name is Kate Barbour, and I teach 7th grade Literature. This is my sixth year at Lakewood and my 12th year of teaching, overall. I graduated from Hope College with a degree in K-12 Physical Education and 6-12 Secondary English and later earned my Master's in TESOL, with an ESL endorcement, from Grand Valley State University. After graduating from Hope, I taught in Taichung, Taiwan for three years at a boarding school and at Wavecrest Career Academy in Holland, Michigan, before being hired into the Lakewood family. I have been apart of the girl's Varsity Soccer program for the past five years, as well. When I'm not at school or coaching, I can be found with my husband, Jermey, and my daughter, Maya.
