Kate del Balzo
5th Grade Teacher
I grew up in Johns Creek, Georgia, and I had the privilege to attend Catholic school my whole life. In 2021 I graduated from Sewanee: The University of the South with a degree in Psychology and Early Education. Soon after graduation, I moved to Nashville. I had many interviews lined up, but little did I know, God saved the best for last! I was blessed to join the St. Edward team last fall.
I had the opportunity to find my desire to teach during my senior year of high school. I student taught as an elective and instantly fell in love with the kids and the joy they received while learning. Even during the summer, I continue to pursue my passion for working with kids; I have served as a head swim coach for the past four years. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, running, being outside, and traveling to new places!
I feel very fortunate to be teaching at such an amazing school! St. Edward became my home away from home, and it will always have a very special place in my heart!
