Kathryn Cox joined the Miller School of Albemarle as a history instructor in 2019. Having cultivated a love of history after traveling to Ireland in high school, Kathryn graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville with a BA in history in 2005. After starting her teaching career as a middle school librarian and history instructor in central Virginia, she completed her MEd in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Virginia in 2012. Having a passion for global and accessible education, Kathryn continued her education through TESOL’s continuing education programming while working as the International Program Coordinator and history instructor in Gastonia, North Carolina. There she was able to create and implement an ELL program while honing her skills as a dynamic history instructor. Kathryn has had the opportunity to participate in a research trip to China and present her findings at the NCAIS International Student Conference. During her time in North Carolina she also served as a grade level dean, helping to create and implement the school’s advisory and student-life programming.
When her husband, Wes, was accepted into the doctoral program at the University of Virginia, she and their daughter Morgan were thrilled to find themselves returning to central Virginia. Kathryn loves to travel--hoping to visit all seven continents one day, run, and curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee.
