Welcome to everyone here at Hope Community Preschool! My name is Kathy Petrill and I am the Director for our preschool! I look forward to developing lasting relationships that benefit the church and the education of our children.
I am a graduate of Hood College in Frederick, Maryland. My bachelors’ degree is in Early Childhood Education and my masters’ degree is as a Reading Specialist. I was a public school teacher in Frederick and Washington counties for 16 years. Before coming to HOPE, I was a preschool teacher for a local church in Hagerstown.
I reside in Hagerstown with my husband and my 2 daughters, 11 year-old, Addy and 6 year old, Claire. I also have 2 stepsons, ages 23 and 27 who reside in Frederick. I love spending time with my family, gardening and going to the beach.
I look forward to meeting all of the Hope Community Preschool families and having a wonderful year together!
