Kate Mehmel

Kate Mehmel is a Cairn graduate who returned to the University after teaching high school math for 13 years. She (slowly) worked on a MA in Mathematics from Villanova while teaching, coaching, running youth group, and counseling at summer camp. She loves teenagers. She also loves to camp, hike, and generally to be outside, though inside with a book and a cup of coffee is also lovely. She spends most of her time with her toddler Eliana, who is (usually) a delight and in whom she is trying to instill a love of both the outdoors and books.

What Our Students Have To Say

Kathyrn Reid

I appreciate the genuine excitement evident in the math teachers for their discipline. They're not just excited about math, they want their students to appreciate it too. The small class sizes also allow us to get to know not just the professors, but other students and work at a more personalized pace.
