Cathie Tramontina, Petroglyph ES

After 30 years of dedicated service to the Albuquerque Public Schools, Cathie Tramontina, 4th grade teacher at Petroglyph Elementary School, is setting her sights on a well-deserved retirement.

Cathie began her career in Iowa where she taught for eight years before moving to Albuquerque with her family. In 1985 she began teaching at Chaparral Elementary. Cathie said, “I’m a better teacher because I learned so much from the students and staff at Chaparral. I think every teacher should have an opportunity to teach there.” During her tenure at APS, Cathy taught various grades, but 4th grade was definitely her favorite.  

Cathie’s stellar leadership, unabashed passion for teaching and learning, as well as her unparalleled pursuit of excellence benefitted students, colleagues and the school communities she served. Her love of literacy was prevalent as Literacy Leader.  A colleague at Petroglyph said, “APS is saying goodbye to a teacher who helped mentor others, who gave her time generously and who enriched the lives of so many children. Quite simply, I am a better teacher because of Cathie.”

Cathie’s retirement celebration will be Wednesday, May 13, from 2:15 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Petroglyph Elementary School in the cafeteria. Mrs. Tramontina will be missed by the Petroglyph community and her professional and personal contributions to our school will continue to be felt for generations. Please join us in wishing Cathie all the best in her future endeavors.
