Katie is excited to join the Sunny Hollow Montessori community. Her family moved “home” to Minnesota from Texas earlier this summer, and she is thrilled to be back. She holds a Montessori teaching credential for the Junior High and High School levels from Houston Montessori Center, a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Kansas State University, and a Master’s degree and Ph.D. Candidacy in Family Social Science from the University of Minnesota. Katie was a Junior High Guide for the past three years in Fort Worth, Texas, and prior to that, taught courses at the University of Minnesota and Texas Woman’s University. Katie and her husband are the proud parents of three Montessori children: Emma, Jack, and Lucy. Together, they enjoy being in nature with their rescue dog, vegetable gardening, reading, and cooking.
