I am Katie Bean and I couldn't be more excited to begin my journey of teaching here at Zaharis Elementary! I spent last year student teaching and learning among the incredible educators we have at this school. Following my student teaching experience I was able to long-term substitute in a classroom at Zaharis and spent the remainder of the school year teaching alongside these amazing mentors.
I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho with my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood/Special Education. I will be this years SLD Resource Teacher for K-1 and 4. I have a strong belief in every child's ability to learn, grow, and succeed and I look forward to working with all of you to ensure the best success for your children. I believe that it is when we work together as a team that we will see amazing things happen in your child's development. I will be doing a lot of inclusive work with my students in their general education classrooms to ensure that they are not missing the pivotal experiences that are happening there. As necessary, I will do small group work in my classroom to assure that your child is reaching their goals.
I am looking forward to the journey that lies ahead of us this school year!
