Mrs. Catherine Dulmaine


Hi!  My name is Kate Dulmaine and I am so excited to have your child in my classroom this year! As different as it may look, I expect it is going to be an exciting year full of learning, growing, and exploring. I look forward to working closely with you to ensure the success of your child in 2nd grade.


A little about me: I grew up in Massachusetts but moved to North Carolina about 15 years ago. We have made Johnston County our home and could not imagine living anywhere else! My husband and I have two wonderful boys and a beautiful puppy who loves to run around and play. My older son is a senior at Cleveland High this year and is very involved in the marching band there. My younger son is part of the inaugural dual language program at Polenta and is entering middle school at Swift Creek where I'm happy to say that they are continuing the dual language program this year! I am a huge believer in and advocate for our dual language program. I've seen first-hand the benefits of this program and the effects of it not just on him, but really our whole family as well. I feel incredibly blessed and thankful to have been part of this program- as both a teacher and a parent- for the last 6 years. I graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Elementary Education and the New England College of Business and Finance where I earned a degree in business administration and finance. Additionally, I have a K-12 reading specialist certification- I absolutely LOVE reading and hope to pass that on to my students!  It is my goal to help your child flourish and succeed as a responsible, independent learner in a supportive and respectful environment.

I look forward to getting to know your child this year and to collaborating with you to help your child reach his or her goals.

The best way to contact me is by email at or through Class Dojo. I will always do my best to respond ASAP.
