Assistant Principal – Kathy Bantz


Kathy Bantz has been at PCA since it was founded in 2010.  She graduated from Oberlin College and Conservatory in 1991 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education and then went on to receive a Master’s Degree in Music Performance.  Her educational career began in New York teaching elementary band and continued in Kansas City where she taught elementary, middle school, and high school band. It wasn’t until she moved to Cuthbert, Georgia and started working at Randolph County Elementary School that she started working as an academic  teacher. At Randolph she had the opportunity to teach general music and then Pre-K. Teaching Pre-K inspired her to obtain certification in elementary education, and she then taught second and third grade. When Pataula Charter Academy opened, she did not hesitate to enroll her two children and pursue a job with the Charter School.  Since being at PCA, Kathy has been a classroom teacher for second and third grade and has taught intervention classes for struggling students in grades K-8. Her passion for the school led her to take classes to earn an instructional coaching endorsement, and this is her second year of serving as a full time instructional coach. In addition to coaching duties, Kathy leads the school choir, the PCA Ambassadors, and works with the HS Literary Team on music.  Kathy’s two children who started at PCA in the 4th grade will graduate this year.
