Faculty & Staff Directory

Since 1999, Katherine Michiels School has been operating under a cooperative administration composed of women and men who are both parents and educators. The persons listed on this page are directly responsible for their programs.  They are your direct contact person for questions, needs, compliments, contributions, etc., with regards to your child(ren). 

KMS prefers 1-on-1, personal communication. KMS prefers voicemail rather than email. The staff is better able to respond when we can hear your voice as it provides us with a better understanding of your message. The process of receiving and responding to email takes us away from our primary responsibility of caring for and interacting with the children.

The school has a voicemail system that allows the directors to stay involved with the children and return calls during their scheduled breaks. Please call (415) 821-1434 and leave a message on the appropriate extension. This is a 24-hour system; please use it at your convenience.

Each extension’s outgoing message states when the Head Teacher/Director is able to return calls. All staff pick up their messages a minimum of once a day at specific times. Please be available for your call back or specify that it is OK to leave a message with the information requested.
