Hello! My name is Kaitlyn, and this is my first year teaching in my own classroom. I have recently graduated from Winona State University and accepted a position here as an E2 teacher. My degree is in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood Emphasis and Middle Level Math minor. Before graduation, I student-taught in a 4th grade classroom and in a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math classroom. Though I have just graduated in the spring of this year, I have already begun classes to learn the Montessori teaching method. I am excited to continue my learning in Montessori education because the beliefs and practices on learning resonate with my own.
I live here in Winona with my family. My children’s names are Jayla (7) and Adonis (4). They have been so patient while I finished school and pursued a career. While living in Winona I have worked at the YMCA in multiple positions working with children of all ages. In my free time you can find me reading, looking for agates, or attending family friendly activities. I am so elated and grateful to be a part of Bluffview Montessori and get to know it’s community!
