KATE PATERSON, PhD
As an educator, I have found Kate to be a wonderful resource when learning how to approach gender in the elementary classroom. Her research and insight into what constitutes a truly safe and welcoming environment for all has shaped the way I interact with my students and approach education as a whole.
—Brittnee M., elementary school teacher
