Parents as Teachers (PAT)

PAT is here to provide you with all the information you need to help your child grow!

Cathy Borgmeyer has been a parent educator since 1994. She received a B.S. degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Biology in August 1970 from Lincoln University. She helped set up the first kindergarten in the district and taught kindergarten for many years. She also taught first and second grade combined at Meta Elementary School. Mrs. Borgmeyer has four children and five grandchildren.

Mrs. Borgmeyer has retired but continues to work part-time. She does home visits every day, where she checks the development of the child and helps parents to be the best they can be. She also does screenings and refers the child if there is an issue. It is an wonderful job which she dearly loves.
