About Katherine

I am a New England girl at heart. Born and raised in Connecticut, I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I attended Boston University where I got a degree in Social Studies Education. During college I had the incredible opportunity to study abroad (twice!) I visited 12 different countries during my Semester at Sea and a year later I completed my student teaching in London, England. After graduation I worked for a year in New London, Connecticut and then moved to Chicago, where I taught fourth grade.

I love history because it is tangible, it is happening all the time and can be made so relevant to our lives. I am excited to be teaching English as well this year, as I love to read and write! I live in Middletown with my dog, Dolly, we love to go on long runs! In my free time I travel, read, cook and spend time with family & friends.

Having taught 4th, 5th and now 6th grade English, I have 3 years experience instructing middle-grade reading and writing skills. I also work with 8th graders to teach thesis development and primary source reading abilities.

History is my first love. As a 6th-8th grade history teacher, my content knowledge spans from work history through American studies and basic civics. I teach primary source analysis, map skills, thesis development, DBQ writing etc. I want each of my students to develop their own connection with history as it relates to the world around them.

If you are struggling to connect with history, need help building writing or reading skills, or just want to spend time reviewing material, I look forward to hearing from you!
