As a teacher consultant for All Belong, Katie is excited to partner with Christ-Centered schools in the mission to build communities of belonging that mirror the body of Christ. She believes that God has made us all uniquely beautiful, in his image, and that we are called to live in a community where we complement one another. It is her joy and privilege to be able to walk alongside schools as they work to reflect this beauty. Katie brings over 12 years of experience in both elementary and secondary settings, working with students with varied abilities. In addition to her academic teaching background, Katie has extensive experience teaching social emotional learning and is passionate about sharing these tools with others.
Katie and her husband, Nate, have two girls and enjoy game nights, family movie nights and spending their time by the water.
