Mrs. Kathleen Walsh
Hello, and welcome! I am Mrs. Walsh. I teach Language Arts, TAG Language Arts and Advanced. Punta Gorda Middle has been my home for a while now. I love literature, travel and many other fun aspects that I bring to the classroom. I was born in Boston, Mass, and then moved to Ireland. Being raised in Ireland was a wonderful experience. Then my husband and I moved to Florida and I continued a career in radio, which I did for many years. Teaching is a late career for me, but I love it. We go home to Ireland every summer, but my second favorite place is Finland. I teach Finnish literature and bring in the culture whenever I can. Poland was where we went last summer, and on my list of place I have visited are Estonia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, North Africa, and I lived in England many summers. I speak a language called Welsh and can get by ina few other ones. I enjoy teaching here and hope to stay much longer.
