Cathy Walters has been an educator, coach, athlete, volunteer, wife, mother, and is grandmother. Because of her love of learning, competition, and the outdoors, the Iditarod dogsled race has become an essential part of her curriculum for 13 years. She has built upon and expanded her Iditarod unit so that it is not only a major feature of the pre-kindergarten program at Carolina Day School, but also the Key School, the Carolina Day School division devoted to teaching children with learning differences.
