Katie will have big milestones this year: twenty years of teaching, and ten of them here at BFA! She began teaching in 2001 after finishing her undergrad in education at Missouri State University. She then finished her Master’s in Elem. Education three years later. After teaching 15 years in elementary, Katie moved to middle school and hasn’t regretted a day since. She loves middle schoolers and teaching social studies at BFA. Outside of school, Katie loves spending time with her family, being outside, and getting together with friends.
