Katie is proud to represent Teach For America as the Recruitment Manager at ASU! Born and raised in Ohio, Katie graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Ohio State University. While at Ohio State University, Katie was involved as a member of club basketball, Chimes Class Honorary Service Chair, and Program Leader at After-School All-Stars. Through these experiences, she realized that although every child has an infinite amount of potential, not every child has an equal opportunity. She joined Teach For America as a Phoenix Corps Member in 2013 and quickly fell in love with the diverse Phoenix community. During her TFA experience, she earned a master’s degree from Arizona State University in special education and graduated in 2015. Katie recently completed her fifth year teaching middle school math special education at Osborn Middle School in Phoenix, AZ where she coached high school basketball and served on the school leadership team as a mentor teacher. Katie is excited to continue her work in the movement towards educational equity by connecting the outstanding leaders at ASU to an extraordinary leadership development opportunity through Teach For America.
