Katherine Phelps, 1st Grade
Hello! My name is Katherine Phelps and I am so excited to be teaching First Grade this year!
I am a graduate from the University of Northern Colorado-Center for Urban Education Program. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Endorsement. Throughout college I worked in a Kindergarten classroom as a paraprofessional, and student taught in Kindergarten as well. I also worked for a company called Varsity Tutors and tutored students in grades K-5 in reading and math. I could not be more excited to be teaching First Grade this year!
I am a Colorado native and love this beautiful state. I take any chance I can to spend some time outdoors. I love hiking, camping, kayaking, and running in every wonderful place this state has to offer. Every once in a while I challenge myself to learn something new. The most recent activity I chose is tennis—I’m still getting the hang of it. While the outdoors do take up most of my free time, I also enjoy reading, painting, and going to museums. The Art museum and Museum of Nature and Science are my personal favorites!
I have had a passion for teaching my entire life and am so excited to turn my dreams into a reality this year!
