Katie graduated from Baylor University with a BS in Education (concentration in reading.) She is married to Joel, and they have two children at Austin Classical, Emmy and Boone. Katie has taught 2ndand 3rd grade, first in Mansfield ISD and then in a classical Christian school in Dripping Springs. She loved being a part of a new school, and it was during this time that she realized what a treasure classical Christian education is. Katie also taught the four-and-five-year-old class at Milwood Baptist Preschool.
Before she was married, Katie was on staff with Young Life in Dallas, a ministry still near to her heart, and she has led a college Bible study through Austin Young Life for the past four years. She treasured her time pouring through Scripture and watching her freshmen girls grow into mature seniors who are passionately seeking Jesus.
Katie loves teaching Kindergarten at Austin Classical. Her hope is that students are challenged and encouraged through this unique model, and she is delighted to have the opportunity to partner with parents on such an intimate level. Most of all, she wants her students to walk away with a clearer understanding of the God of the Universe and His incredible love for us.
