Ms. Kathryn Garvey
My name is Kate Garvey and I am excited to be the Assistant Principal at Bruce Vento Elementary.
This will be my 13th year working for SPPS. During my time in SPPS, I worked as a third and fourth-grade teacher at Farnsworth Aerospace and Four Seasons Arts as well as Media Specialist and TOSA before joining the Bruce Vento community!
As an educator I believe that people matter and building relationships is key to success, specifically for our students. I value building relationships with students, families and staff to ensure students come first and are provided a safe space to learn and grow. I have enjoyed getting to know the Bruce Vento community in my short time here, and greatly value the collaboration within this community.
I was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, attended Hamline University where I earned my degree in Elementary Education as well as my Masters in Elementary Education. I later completed my coursework in Educational Leadership to obtain my principal license at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also keep up with high school basketball, as a former high school basketball player, I enjoy watching former students excel both academically and athletically. Go Eagles!
