Welcome to preschool! My name is Katie Pankonen (Miss Katie) and I am looking forward to my second year here at Whittier Elementary! This will be my eighth year in preschool and my sixteenth year teaching in Mesa. I graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2005 with my master’s degree in special education and an endorsement in early childhood education. My previous experience includes teaching kindergarten for children with Autism, assisting in a cross categorical preschool, as well as providing habitation and respite for children on the Autism spectrum. I have learned something new from every child I have worked with, and am looking forward to learning from yours!
