Staley Original: Kate Strahl
15 Original Staff Members Left In School's 15th Year
Administrative assistant Kate Strahl has held the same position at the school since it opened 15 years ago. While Strahl said that in the field of education everything will adapt to some extent, her role has remained mostly the same over time.
“It’s really neat when I’ve been here so long in this same place that people are just expecting that this is my spot,” Strahl said. “It’s nice to be the constant here.”
While Strahl said she found comfort in the familiarity of her role, certain moments in the school’s history were particularly exciting for her.
“Nothing really tops the very first day of school when we opened in 2008,” Strahl said. “The excitement and sense of community was so remarkable. I’ve never experienced anything like it. It was something special, and we were grateful to be a small part of it.”
