My name is Katie Patty, and I'm joining the Webster Team from Chicago, Illinois! I have always had a passion for teaching and believe that each and every student can discover a love for learning. I originally went to school to work in business and got my Bachelors in Advertising from The University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. After many years in the business world, I couldn't shake this pulling desire to return to school and become and educator. I went back to school in my late 20s and got my Masters in Education. I spent 3 years teaching various subjects in middle school, and then spent 3 years teaching 2nd and 3rd grade. This year, I have moved up to 5th grade - teaching Science and Informative Writing. It has been the most amazing experience!! I love igniting a passion in my students for investigating and understanding the world around us.
When I'm not at school, I am spending time with my husband and 6 year old son, Declan. He's on the spectrum, and is simply the light of my life. He's such a smart and funny kid. He wants to be a teacher, too!
Please reach out if you have any questions! I look forward to working with your child this year :)
