  Judith Kaster

Judith Kaster is in her third year as a Palaestra parent and her final two years of homeschooling her youngest daughter. This adventure started 14 years ago, when her twins were ready for first grade. Both she and her husband (Bob Kaster, the electronics teacher) graduated with engineering Masterís degrees from the University of Michigan, where they also first encountered homeschooling families and thus, not afraid of math and science and oblivious to unforeseen challenges, they embarked on the journey. Both volunteered and taught/tutored off and on through the years, Judith mostly Math, Chemistry (undergraduate major) German (native language) and Guitar (hobby). Lego simple machines is a first for Judith - she plans to rely on her understanding of simple machines and the joy of teaching young children to make it a fun and challenging class. The Kasters are members of Woodside Church in White Lake.

  Judith Kaster is teaching the following classes for the 2016 / Winter Session.
  • Simple Machines and Motorized Mechanisms
  • Simple Machines/Math Investigations
  • Algebra 1 8th-10th
