My name is Katie Wilson and I am an Iowa girl, born and raised. I attended Des Moines Public Schools growing up and it has been my dream since I was in elementary school to one day be a teacher in this district. I graduated from Grand View University with a degree in elementary education and an endorsement in reading. Upon graduating, I taught fifth grade for two years. After that time I moved to Waterloo, Iowa for a year where I worked as a graduate assistant in the Literacy and Curriculum department at UNI. In this position, I worked as a practicum supervisor to junior level elementary education students. Upon moving back to Des Moines I taught middle school for one semester then worked as a substitute in the district. In my free time, I love spending time with my family, walking my dogs, and reading. I’m so excited to start teaching at South Union. One thing I am most looking forward to is getting to know all of my students and their families. Thank you for welcoming me to your school!
