This is Kathy Damato’s third year at St. Raphael's Preschool. Prior to teaching at St. Raphael's, she taught for 12 years at Good Shepherd in Novato and 13 years at various preschools-one in San Rafael and the others down in the Peninsula. She grew up in Pacifica, and received her BA in Child Development from San Francisco State University. She has her Site-Supervisor Permit issued by the State of California and will be assisting Mrs. Yates in being the Assistant Director while also being the Head Teacher in the Saints class.


She loves working with children. They are so much fun to work with and keep her feeling young and energized. They all are so unique and add their own special quality to the classroom environment. St. Raphael's was the one preschool in San Rafael that had the exact qualities and philosophy that she was looking for, for herself as a teacher, as well as, a parent to her two sons. Everyone at St. Raphael's is kind and nurturing to all the children, parents and other staff members.


She and her husband have been married for 24 years, although they have known each other for 31 years. He is her high school sweetheart. They live here in Novato and have two children, Ryan 19 and Jack 17.

       Thank you for the wonderful opportunity you and your children are giving her by allowing her to be their teacher.
