Catherine Abundo- SPED Teacher
My family is my reason and my inspiration. I have a hardworking, supportive and very goofy husband who is everyone’s favorite eye doctor. Our son, Kyle, is almost 21 years old who may look like a mean college football defensive lineman but deep inside, he’s a big teddy bear. Our high school senior daughter, Ellie, is my dancing bug who is always ready to leap and tackle any obstacle that comes her way. We have an 11 year old Cockapoo, Hurley, who is a true mama’s boy and a 5 year old Akita Inu, Henry, who just loves people of all ages.
I went to California State University, Long Beach for my undergraduate degree. My master’s degree is from University of Phoenix. My favorite subject in school was English because learning English as a second language at the age of 10, I wanted to learn as many big words as I could in order to understand everything around me and to be able to speak the language better.
In my free time, I like to spend time with family and friends, hiking and camping. We love to take vacations to Hawaii, Mexico, Bahamas and the Philippines because we love the beaches.
I have been very fortunate to have worked at Sprucewood for 15 years. We have an amazing and very supportive staff and the best group of students and community!
