Cathy Smith, Preschool Director


Cathy Smith joined the staff of Germantown Presbyterian Church in 2011.  Cathy is a native Memphian.  She received a B.S. in education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education from Memphis State University. She has worked in education for 28 years.  Cathy served as a kindergarten teacher for the Memphis public schools before the birth of her two sons.  When she returned to work, she took a position as a kindergarten teacher at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.  She later became the Director of the preschool and completed 20 years of service at St. Luke’s.  For the next two years Cathy served as the Director of Buntyn Presbyterian Preschool.  When the position of Director became available at Germantown Presbyterian Preschool, she saw a wonderful opportunity to serve the families in the community in which she lives.

Cathy has served as both president and vice-president of the Kindergarten Study Group, a professional organization for educators in the private sector.  She has also served on the Board of her neighborhood community in Germantown.

The outstanding staffs from both the church and the preschool have made this an outstanding place to work.  It has been a very rewarding career to be able to help provide a safe, nurturing, Christian environment in which preschool children can learn and thrive!  An equally important part of this job is to provide a listening ear and guidance for parents in need.

Cathy has enjoyed traveling, gardening and home decorating.  All of those hobbies have taken a backseat while she is basking in the blessings of being a grandmother to a granddaughter in North Carolina and to twin granddaughters in Germantown.
