Mrs. Katie Vanderhorst

As a teacher I share my passion of learning with my students. It is wonderful to experience new knowledge on a daily basis. The benefit of being a teacher is that I am learning something new every day, most often from my students! I have been teaching for over thirty years and I have taught every grade level from Kindergarten to 8th grade. It is my goal to inspire my students to become the best person they can be, to follow their dreams. I teach them that in order to follow their dreams they must acquire knowledge and work hard.  It is a joy to have students return to me to share that they have succeeded in reaching their goals; it is through these alumni students that I know that I am teaching successfully.
