Katie started teaching at Ward Preschool in the fall of 2018. She comes to Ward with almost 19 years of teaching experience in different areas of education including preschool, charter school, daycare, middle school, and special needs classrooms. She has a degree in special education from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, OH. Katie has known ever since she was a little girl, playing school in her basement with her stuffed animals and her brother that she wanted to be a teacher. “When I see that smile on a child’s face, when they get a concept that they have been struggling with, that is when I know that I am in the right place.”
Katie recently relocated to Michigan in 2016 from Bowling Green, OH. She is happily married to her husband, Benjamin, and together they have three daughters (23) (14) and (11).
She is so happy and blessed to be a part of the Ward Preschool Family.
