"Hi, My name is Kathaleen. I started attending college January 2020 for an associate
This year I also am working towards a Tech Certificate so when I graduate, I will
have an associate degree and a Tech Certificate.
I am a young 60 year old. I was born and raised in Pittsfield, MA. I came to college
in 2020 to become a better Drama teacher. I taught at the time at Berkshire Dream
Center — two plays and a special sing along with the kids. I also was in a bible study,
prayer group, and played in the band. I started with 12-string guitar and went to
six strings then learned to play the piano because Pastor needed a piano player. Then
later moved to bass playing.
I had a house fire on Dec. 28, 2019. I still pursued school. Thanks to financial aid
I am able to be at BCC and am grateful and thankful. Later on in the year, Oct. 1,
2022, I was homeless till Feb. 1, 2023. I now have a home and back on track with my
schoolwork. All through this mess, I hope it will be a powerful message someday.
I am also a Producer at Pittsfield Community Television since 2019. The name of my
show is "The Kathaleen Show." The show is mainly animals and a reminder that God loves
us. I also do Special Editions, for example. Thank you, PCTV. Thank you, BCC.
To date, I have done 75 shows and growing.
My goal is to one day make a movie with Melessa McCarthy and then come back and help
my community. I help as many as I can whether it is just listening or handing out
supplies, whatever may be needed. I would like to reach as many people as possible
to encourage that we all have value. Please feel free to ask any questions that would
be of help to you. I hope all of you have a peaceful day."
