My name is Katie Holten and I have been teaching at Garlough since 2008. I have a degree in Elementary Education from Luther College and a Masters in Education in Natural Science and Environmental Education with an emphasis in Science Teaching from Hamline University. At Luther College I also studied Physical Education and Spanish. I love teaching at Garlough because of its environmental focus and the amazing community of families and staff. When I am not at school I can be found playing with my daughter and my dog, playing ultimate Frisbee, biking, rock climbing, or reading. My dog, Madi, often comes into the classroom with me during some days of the school year.
