Hare Krishna! My name is Ms. Kathryn. I have been a teacher at Goswami Academy for three years. I love that Goswami Academy is a school where students and teachers treat one another with kindness and respect and appreciate one another as fellow souls on a shared spiritual journey. My goal in teaching is to cultivate relationships based on trust, to understand students as individuals, and to help each student fulfill his or her full personal and academic potential in an environment that balances focus on learning with attention to the full person.
