My name is Katie Shaffer. I have been teaching kindergarten at Merton Primary School since 2015. I attended college at UW-La Crosse where I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education with a minor in early-childhood education in 2012. I received my masters degree in educational leadership from Cardinal Stritch in 2017. I enjoy hiking, running and cooking. 

My Philosophy
I believe that Kindergarten is a place where every child has the opportunity to learn and grow. As a teacher, I create a trusting environment to encourage independent and creative thinking. I hold high expectations for your child's academic development. I provide a safe and nurturing environment for each child to thrive socially and emotionally. Kindergarten is about enjoying their school experience, creating memories and developing a lifelong love of learning.
