Before arriving at MBS to teach study strategies to both Middle and Upper School students, she taught grades 5 through 8 in Hanover Township. During her tenure there, Katie presented on the topic of Inclusive Education at the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE) Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She was also trained in the Wilson Reading Method, a specialized program designed to help struggling readers with decoding and fluency.

In addition to her teaching experiences at MBS, Katie instituted the Peer Tutoring Program in 2011 for math, science, and world languages, as well as for the Middle School Guided Homework Program. In 2017, she became the Grade Dean for the Class of 2020.

She is also a state-certified Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant. In her free time, Katie enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and playing golf.
