Room 5 consists of our TK though 1st grade.

After a few short weeks these younger students have embraced the school routines and are excited about learning and growing up in beautiful Yosemite!

DeCecco, Cathy

Room 5 teacher Cathy DeCecco was born on the East Coast near Philadelphia.  She has the dubious honor of being the only sister to seven brothers.  After graduating with a degree in Elementary Education from Pennsylvania State University, Cathy was a daycare worker for children with special needs, a nanny in Germany, and a social worker in Monterey and Ventura California. Finally, Ms. DeCecco followed her heart back to elementary education and taught fourth grade for four years in Ventura County.  Cathy has taught at Yosemite Valley School since 2006 and has had the privilege of teaching all the grade levels at the school.  When she is not in the classroom, Cathy spends most of her free time climbing at all the beautiful places Yosemite National Park has to offer.
