Ms. Kate Teller

High School Academic Coach

About Ms. Teller: 
Ms. Teller began her teaching career in Placerville, CA, in 2004. In 2010, she decided she had to be closer to the mountains and moved to the Truckee/North Tahoe area. Since that time, she worked as an English teacher, teacher trainer, and curriculum specialist for an online school. She has taught all levels of Secondary English, from 9th to AP, Creative Writing, and AVID. She loves teaching because every day in a classroom is challenging and rewarding. She finds that her students always surprise her with their creativity, ingenuity, kindness, and drive- they give her hope for the future! Teaching at NTHS had been a longtime dream that finally came true in 2016.  When she is not teaching, she is outside enjoying all Tahoe has to offer with her husband and her dog. She also volunteers with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Nevada County and North Tahoe.
