Cathy Doggett – Partner Hero

Please join us on October 30th as we recognize Cathy Doggett as our Partner Hero for her volunteer leadership with AVANCE-Austin:

“I’m really thrilled to be honored by AVANCE because AVANCE offers life-changing experiences for families. For the families that are served, AVANCE is an entry point to an educational path they might not have thought possible.”

AVANCE-Austin moms will tell you about the importance of finding their tribe. The support network and sense of community are critical as they learn new skills and expand their goals. AVANCE, too, is proud to say we’ve found our tribe in fellow change agent and early childhood education expert, Cathy Doggett, ED.M.

For over two decades, Cathy has used her energy, enthusiasm, and problem-solving skills to improve the educational success of young children and lift up families. As an advisor to nonprofit and school leaders, including AVANCE, Cathy has helped develop and implement innovative programs to dramatically increase kindergarten readiness and move families out of poverty across Central Texas.

Combining research-based practices and her own experience as a public school, childcare, and HeadStart teacher, Cathy creates “aha” moments in her trainings with educational leaders.

Cathy is a graduate of Oberlin College and earned her Master’s degree from Harvard University. She founded Paradigm Shift to work with leaders seeking transformational change for their school districts, organizations, and communities.
