Hi! I’m Katie Field. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago, but I made the move west to attend the University of Colorado-Boulder years ago (although my accent will never go away). My mom, twin brother and his family live back in Illinois, while my sister lives across the pond in London, England.
Leawood will always have a special place in my heart because I was lucky enough to student teach here following the loss of my father. The following year, I was hired on as a full-time teacher. The majority of my time has been spent in 2nd grade, and I have loved every minute of it!
The love of my life is my Great Pyrenees, Althea. She is 8 years old. Yoga is a huge part of my life, and I love to incorporate it in the classroom with my students. Just ask your child to teach you the pose we are learning!
My classroom is a fun environment where students have a lot of choice over their learning. Please feel free to pop in anytime and see what we are doing.
