Hello everyone! My name is Katherine, but everyone calls me "Kat." I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in May of 2021 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I am currently in grad school (Masters in Elementary Education) studying for my certification exams and saving money for my future classroom! As I take this STEM course, I aspire to help students enjoy learning important science concepts while using engaging, hands-on experiences. I believe integrating this approach will help them enjoy the world around them instead of "teaching to the test." I am very confident and sure that the NSTA's resources will help me grow as a future educator. I cannot wait to learn from you! My hobbies include: art, music, singing, dancing, reading, watching movies/shows, scrolling through Facebook/Instagram, makeup, fashion, and running.
