Kathie Markham Kyle
Kathie moved to Long Beach in 1970 with her parents and fell in love with the community. From 1981-1996 she taught preschool before obtaining her Bachelors degree from Evergreen State College.
After college she returned to the Peninsula to pursue her passions: youth education and community enrichment. She worked at Head Start, Tlohon-nipts Alternative High School, and Peninsula Learns. In 2003, Kathie moved to Milwaukie, Oregon with her husband and started Green Acres Day Camp which she considers to be one of her life's greatest accomplishments.
After she retired, she returned to the place she's called home for so long and began working as an emergency substitute at Ocean Beach School District and Boys & Girls Club. She also goes by "Sonshine" the Clown on the weekends and at special events!
