Katie Stanton Katie Stanton

Katie Stanton grew up in a family of educators and always knew that she wanted to teach. She worked in the early childhood field for a total of 6 years, was a substitute teacher and then moved on to teach fourth grade in the Bronx for two years and is very excited to be returning to Pre-K! She received her bachelors degree in Education and her Masters in Literacy Education at SUNY New Paltz.
Katie believes that each child is unique, learns differently and should have the opportunity to be creative and imaginative while learning. She strives to create authentic, hands on learning experiences that are appropriate for all types of learners.
In her free time, Katie enjoys reading, the outdoors, and spending time with her family and friends. She is especially enjoying being a mom for the first time to her son, Colton, who was born in June 2016!
