Katie was born and raised in Semora, NC. Ever since she was little she always knew she wanted a career working with children.  When she graduated from high school in 2016, she had no idea what career path she wanted to go down. She only knew that she wanted to work with children. She attended Piedmont Community College right after high school. She graduated with her Associates in Art in 2018. She then decided she would try a nursing major. When that didn’t work out, she took a break from school and became a nanny. She was informed by a relative that she should look into The Little School. Once she saw how interesting the school looked and experienced how special it was in person, she was hooked. She believes children should be able to get dirty, play, be kids, and learn while doing these things. Exploration is a big part of learning and growing.  Seeing children learn something new and get excited about it, brings joy to her heart. Katie really enjoys singing, going on adventures, and spending time with friends and family.
