Kate Sidereas

I have been a member of the West Leyden Student Services team since 2013. Prior to being at West, I was the social worker at an alternative school for 9 years. I did my internship at West while finishing graduate school in 2003-2004 and am happy to have come full circle.


When I’m not working, I am usually with my husband and two children, probably walking to Starbucks. In my free time, I love to be with friends, cook, and practice yoga.
