Meet Our Resource Teachers/Instructional Coaches!

Cathy Novelo

My name is Cathy Novelo. I feel happy and honored to serve as an Instructional Coach at Willard. I was born and raised in Pasadena and went to PUSD schools. I have been an educator for PUSD for 27 years and that’s not counting the years I worked as an Instructional aide! I love what I do and I am grateful to serve the Willard community.

I believe in the whole child: body, mind, and spirit. Most of my day is spent on helping children at Willard to sort out their feelings, difficulties they are experiencing, and making connections socially, emotionally, cognitively, so they can put their best foot forward in the classroom.
