Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, King Families!
My name is Laura Catalano, it is my pleasure to be a member of this collaborative community and to serve as a second grade teacher! I graduated from Michigan State University in 2012 and spent the last six years teaching in Chicago. I taught third grade for three years (one year being student teaching) and first grade for three years. Born and raised in Michigan, I am thrilled to have moved back to the Mitten State this summer, closer to family and friends! This fall, I will start my Master's Degree in K-12 Educational Administration through Michigan State. Teaching is my first passion; however, through teaching and various teacher leader organizations I have served in, I have become passionate about educational leadership.
I am excited about creating and maintaining a safe learning environment, one that encourages student voice, student interest and student choice. I very much look forward to a year of learning, growth and fun!
