Kathy Petrill

Welcome to everyone here at Hope Community Preschool!  My name is Kathy Petrill and I am the Director for our preschoolJ  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, 9 ½ year-old, Addy and 4 ½ year old, Claire.  I also have 2 stepsons, ages 21 and 25 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!
