My name is Katie Killeen and this is my 5th year as a classroom teacher and at KCIA! I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska where I attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and received a Bachelors degree in Biological Sciences. After graduating I worked for 5 years as a Para Educator in a local High School. It was my work in the Nebraska school system and my students that inspired me to go back to school for my education certificate. I moved to Kansas City after I got married in 2015, and I graduated from the University of Missouri at Kansas City with a Bachelors of Science in Middle School Education in 2018. During my free time I love to cook, dance, play with my son, spend time with my family, and listen to Korean Pop music! I am excited for a new year of learning at KCIA!
