Mrs. Kathy Sigg joined the Serra Catholic community in 2008, when she was hired as the geometry instructor for our mathematics department.  Today, she teaches all of our geometry classes, in addition to a College in High School calculus class each day.  Below is an excerpt from her autobiography:

I attended West Virginia University, on a softball scholarship, to study engineering. I received my bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from WVU in 1982. Following graduation, I worked for a commercial division of Westinghouse Electric Corporation where I was a design engineer. A large portion of my job was to design tooling used to service commercial nuclear power plant components. Later in my engineering career, I worked at Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory as a test engineer, where my job was to design and build test hardware to support the design of nuclear reactor components used in submarines and aircraft carriers. I began attending the University of Pittsburgh at night in pursuit of my certification to teach secondary mathematics. After receiving my teaching certification from Pitt in 2008, I began teaching mathematics at Serra Catholic High school. One of my greatest joys is bringing my work experience into my classroom so that my students can see that math extends far beyond the walls of the classroom.
