6th - 8th Grade Social Studies Teacher
Born in England and raised in Hancock Park, Kate Gorr attended Marlborough School and the University of Southern California where she played on the Women's Tennis Team. It was at USC where Kate met her husband, Robb, an administrator and golf coach at Loyola High School. The Gorrs share a love of learning and working with young people!
After completing her Undergraduate and Master's degrees from USC, Kate began at St. Brendan School, in 2001, as the 3rd grade teacher, for five years, before becoming the 6th grade homeroom teacher and then the middle school social studies teacher. As Kate’s career continued, she transitioned out of the homeroom position and devoted herself to the social studies curriculum. Kate says, “My approach to educating young people has evolved over many years. I still love telling the ‘story of history’ but especially enjoy when students are engaged in project learning.”
When she is not on campus, Kate is knee deep in her children’s activities. Kate and her husband are devoted Trojan fans who are raising an equally devoted Stanford fan among their four children! How did that happen?
