Katie graduated from Carleton College and completed her MAT in 2011. She currently teaches third grade at the Cambridgeport School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
I have always wanted to be a teacher and am excited to finally be concretely on that path, though I feel I’ve been on the “teacher path” since elementary school. Because I love all learning and therefore all subjects, it broke my heart to think of picking just one to teach, which is partly why I’m really excited to teach in elementary school. I’m also excited about giving children a basis for understanding and building blocks or tools with which to continue learning all their lives. I believe that elementary school is the place to really be able to affect students and their attitudes towards learning and I am gratified to be part of making learning exciting, fun and wonderful for all children.

The MAT program in public elementary education prepares you for active commitment to the democratic mission of public education. That mission rests on two core beliefs:
- All children are able and deserve to flourish intellectually, socially and morally.
- It is the duty of teachers to promote that flourishing.
