Welcome to my Classroom
Mrs. Katie Mitchell - Kindergarten
Welcome! My name is Katie Mitchell. I was born and raised in upstate New York. I attended Alfred University where I studied Elementary Education. After graduation I moved to Boston where I was a Nanny for 2 beautiful children. My next move was Charlotte, NC. I taught first and second grades for 7 years at Pawtuckett Elementary School. I moved to Asheville 11 years ago and began teaching at Johnston! I taught 4th grade for a year, and I taught kindergarten for 7 years. I was fortunate to then begin looping with my students. I took my first group of kindergarten students to first grade during the 2013-2014 school year, and I took another group of kindergarten students to first grade last year. I am so excited to be back in Kindergarten this year. We have an amazing team of teachers and students.
I have a second grade student of my own. My son, my husband, and my dog are the apples of my eye!
We have a wonderful assistant in our classroom, Mrs. Freeman has come to Johnston with many years experience. She worked at Candler Elementary in classrooms and in the computer lab. We are so lucky to have her wiith us this year.
