Cathy Herrera, 7th & 8th grade exceptional education

God led me to JT Moore, and I am excited to be here as an exceptional education teacher in 7th and 8th grade. I came back to education last year after a nine year hiatus working in the nonprofit/business world.

I am a very proud mother of five amazing children, ages 27, 25, 24, 22 and 19 who live in Los Angeles and Nashville.  I have a BA in Political Science from Loyola Marymount University in LA and have a Masters in Education from Bethel University.  I am a certified massage therapist and have been a certified life guard, FIFA soccer referee, FA/CPR trainer and have worn many other hats.  I am in the process of moving from Paris, TN, and enjoy boating, gardening, theater and anything cultural and artistic, and I am involved with Emergency Management.

I love helping children figure out how they learn and advocating for themselves but I will be their voice when needed.
