Katie Brumfield feels as if Grace is her home away from home. Mrs. B., as most students and their families call her, has been teaching at Grace since 2004. Not only has she taught here for many years, she has spent most of her life here as well! Katie attended Grace Lutheran School from kindergarten to eighth grade. She also worked as a summer day camp counselor through her high school and some of her college years. Now, Katie loves being an active member of both the school and church communities.
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 learnerconstantly 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 its religion 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 cheers on the Chargers and Padres to victory! They also love to explore San Diego County and all the adventures it brings!
