Ms. DWelcome to kindergarten! I have been teaching in District 105 since 2009. Kindergarten is such a memorable time for students. We learn about letters, numbers and how they work, how to ask questions about the world around us, how to solve problems, as well as build lifelong friendships! Every day is a great day in Kindergarten! My degrees and certifications include B.A. Early Childhood Education- Special Education Endorsement, M.A-Curriculum and Instruction- English as a Second Language Endorsement, Educational Specialist Degree (ED.S) in Applied Behavior Analysis, Learning Behavior Specialist I Endorsement, Learning Behavior Specialist II (in progress).
Welcome to a new school year! My name is Katie Walsh and I teach kindergarten here at Spring Avenue. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Columbia College Chicago where I studied Journalism. I continued my education and earned a Master's degree in Elementary Education from National-Louis University. I have three children and we love to spend time hiking, camping, traveling, and going on bike rides. Spring Avenue has been my home for many years. District 105 is an amazing place to be and we welcome you to our school!
