As a middle school math and advocacy teacher, Catie seeks opportunities to help students connect classroom learning with the real world. In her Algebra classes, students use motion detectors to create distance-time graphs, and they graph linear and exponential functions by modeling bouncy ball bounces. Catie has also coached volleyball and swimming, taught sewing as an elective, played in an adult softball league, and built custom new window screens! Catie values the many experiences that she has had, and is committed to developing similar opportunities for the students.
Catie is passionate about our summer camp, as it promotes student exploration, free from any pressure. Learning is experiential and is focused on curiosity, creativity, and enjoyment. Catie has ensured that the ACDS camps have something for everyone: art, drama, sports, coding, astronomy, robotics, and more. Catie looks forward to watching the children play joyfully, meet new friends, and engage intently in creative learning. She has gathered a strong and enthusiastic group of teachers to help make it all happen.
