about Kate

Kate Friedman has been studying the field of learning for the past 20 years as an educator, learner, and observer. Her experiences have led her to believe that public education can be re-imagined by blending self-directed learning with traditional curriculums via Universal Design for Learning.  

Kate seeks out opportunities that challenge notions about people of all abilities, art and art materials, and what it means to be part of a community. 

Kate teaches graduate classes at Bank Street College, where she holds a Dual Masters in Early Childhood Special and General Education. Kate also teaches online classes through Skillshare. 

A few times a year Kate can be found riding her bicycle around the world while exploring other cultures and education systems.
