Kathy Lynn Cedoz, Teacher at McKenzie Elementary School, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in elementary education.

With nearly 40 years of experience in the field of education, Ms. Cedoz has been hailed as a role model for countless generations of students. At McKenzie Elementary School, she excelled in teaching grades three, four and five. She was first inspired to become an educator by her mother, who found success as a first-grade teacher for nearly 40 years herself. Above all, she has always enjoyed learning new things and sought to make learning a fun activity for everybody. Over the course of her career, she is gratified that her mother was there to assist her, from classroom set up to art project demonstrations.

Ms. Cedoz initially obtained a Bachelor of Arts prior to earning a Master of Education from National Louis University, formerly known as the National College of Education, in 1971 and 1972 respectively. Though her career has been suffused with highlights, she is most proud to reconnect with her former students. On her last day of teaching before her retirement, many of her former students visited her and threw her a party. Moreover, she is glad to keep in touch with many students, including two of which who currently teach at McKenzie Elementary School. Additionally, she is happy to have collaborated with a music teacher on a fourth-grade music and arts program.

Further dedicated to her community, Ms. Cedoz regularly volunteers at her local homeless shelter, where she sponsors and prepares meals for the homeless population in her area. For her achievements in the field of education, she is honored to have been nominated for Who’s Who in Teaching on three separate occasions. A celebrated Marquis listee, she has been selected for inclusion into Who’s Who of Professional Women and the Marquis Who’s Who Millennium Magazine. She attributes her success to the support of her coworkers as well as the support of the parents of her students. Currently enjoying her well-deserved retirement, she enjoys football and footgolf.
