Hey y’all! My name is Katie and I teach second grade. This is my third year as a teacher and my third at KCIA. I’m extremely excited to continue working with the rock star teachers in second grade and to get to know my students. I am originally from Indiana where I played soccer and ran track in college. I obtained a Master’s in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Stamford University in Birmingham, Alabama. While at Samford, I was the Director of Operations for the Women’s Soccer program. My husband coaches soccer for Sporting KC, and we have a dog and a cat. We love watching soccer and exploring the best places to eat in Kansas City!
