My name is Kate McDonough and I will be the Occupational Therapist (OT) serving at Washington Elementary School in the 2022-23 school year. I had the opportunity to work with many Washington students last year during a fieldwork/clinical placement, and am overjoyed to be returning to Washington in my first full year with the district! I am originally from Chicago, but have spent the last six years in St. Louis where I attended Saint Louis University for my undergraduate degree, and Maryville University of St. Louis for my master's degree in Occupational Therapy. In my free time, I love to cook, run, read, and spend time with family and friends.
It is a privilege to be able to guide students towards independence within the classroom, and support them in their ability to access their education! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you ever have any questions regarding your child's services, or motor and sensory regulation needs.
