Kathleen A. House

Kathleen House served as teacher and assistant principal before taking the helm at Christ the King Catholic School 22 years ago, leading its evolution into a place of inclusive, 21st Century learning. In 2007, she oversaw the addition of their Pre-K program, which has since grown to four classrooms. In 2013, House hired a special education director to spearhead a new learning assistance program to help struggling students reach their full potential. She has led a technology revolution including school-wide and classroom initiatives and a 1:1 Chromebook program to enhance STEM education. House leads a life skills series for fourth through sixth graders that includes a “Steps to Respect” program to address bullying in middle school. With enrollment management as a critical component of her leadership role, she started the Parent Ambassador Program to pair current and new families, leading to a significant increase in registration. Demonstrating her belief in giving back, House was named Easter Seals Volunteer of the Year in 2015, a 2016 recipient of the NCEA’s “Lead. Learn. Proclaim.” Award, and served on the NCEA Elementary Schools Executive Committee for nine years. She holds a Bachelor’s in Science Education from the University of Arkansas and a Master’s in Science Education from the University of Central Arkansas.
