My name is Kitty McClernand and I am a teacher, mother, coach and personal trainer. Growing up, I played softball, basketball and tennis. I graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. Then in 2009, I completed my certification in personal training. 

From 1998-2011, I taught Physical Education at Our Lady Help of Christians (OLHC) in Abin
gton, PA. Between my teaching role and passion for sports, I quickly became involved with coaching. In 1996, I helped launch the Track & Field CYO program at OLHC. From 1999 to 2010, I laid the foundation for their Cross Country team. During this time frame, my husband and I developed a successful program. Over 20 of our runners have competed on the National Archdiocese teams and many have moved on to compete at the high school and collegiate levels. This success and development led me to serve on the Track & Field CYO Executive Board for three years. I was also the head coach for the OLHC Girls’ Basketball Team from 1997-2001, where I learned the values of practice, team spirit and patience. Most importantly, coaching instilled in me good judgment and a sense of authority. 

In 2006, I started coaching at the high school level for Mount Saint Joseph Academy in Flourtown, PA. Since 2011, I have held the position as head coach for both the Cross Country and Track & Field teams. The CYO program and Catholic School Education background gave me the knowledge and confidence to tackle this position. 

Three years ago I became certified in Personal Training. Since then, I started a Personal Training business, McClernand Fitness. It has been another rewarding chapter in my life. I create training programs and set goals for my clients to achieve. Like my students, I ask for constant feedback and ensure all of my clients feel valued. I also discuss with them other aspects of wellness including general health and nutrition.

I look forward to a new chapter in my life at Queen of Angels! I invite parents and students alike to reach out to me with questions or concerns. I hope to build a successful program and instill in my students work ethic, dedication and loyalty.
