Sun Prairie Children's Museum

Katey Kamoku

I have a Masters in Special Education, with a teaching certification in special and general education. I was a teacher at Sun Prairie High School and currently I am a preschool teacher at Sun Prairie Nursery School. My husband and I have four young children and truly feel that we have found a fantastic city to raise our family in.

I am thrilled to be a part of bringing a children’s museum to Sun Prairie. Children’s museums are built to spark children’s imaginations, allow them to follow their passions and discover new passions, a place where children can show us how they play and in doing so, how their brains are developing. The Explore Children’s Museum will be a community hub; a place for families to enjoy one another, expand and explore their knowledge, develop skills and connect with their community and the world around them.

I graduated from UW-Eau Claire with a degree in Elementary-Middle Education with a minor in Social Studies. I enjoyed teaching elementary-age children with the Sun Prairie Area School District for over 10 years. During which time, I received a Master’s degree from UW-La Crosse, as well as National Board Certification.

I presently stay home with my five children which allows me to have an active role in our community through service, coaching, volunteering and play. Giving opportunities for creative and purposeful play are essential for developing critical thinking and problem solving skills as the foundation for learning. Explore Children’s Museum is an amazing gift to the community that encompasses these skills, as well as my passion for children, gratitude, teaching and lifelong learning.
