Catherine Dunn

Parent, Woodstock Elementary K-5

Catherine is the parent of a first grader at Woodstock who struggles with speech due to a cleft palate, and resulting surgeries. Catherine’s daughter has been working for several years with a speech-language pathologist who uses The Shadow Project to provide motivation toward speaking goals.

Catherine says her daughter loves to earn Shadow rewards when she has achieved small milestones, particularly if her prize is a gift for a family member. A nurse by day, Catherine joined The Shadow Project’s Parent Teacher Advisory Board in the fall of 2016 to be able to share in the school experience with her daughter.

“I love the Shadow Project,” said Catherine. “My daughter gets a great sense of pride when she earns a prize. Her pride brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.”
