M.Ed., Concordia University, Irvine
Katie brings an excitement for life, learning, and her love of God into her classroom. She loves to see what God has planned for her and her students each day. She feels blessed that He has placed each student in her class for His purpose. She is a lifelong learner–constantly striving to be the best teacher she can be by integrating new technology and teaching strategies in her classroom, attending teaching seminars, and frequently evaluating classroom lessons and activities. Whether it’s Bible or reading, math or social studies, Katie also integrates her faith in Jesus Christ with the classroom curriculum. Her excitement is seen not only in what she teaches, but also in the relationships she builds with students.
Katie and her husband, AJ, are the proud parents of Kallie and Noah. In their free time, this energetic family loves to watch the Padres and football. They also love to explore San Diego County and all the adventures it brings!
