Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Katie Flynn
Fifth Grade Teacher
Professional Background: I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Miami University in 1991 and my Master's in Reading and Language from Sonoma State University in 1998. I began my career in education teaching third grade in Hudson, Ohio. I then taught sixth grade at Del Mar Middle School in Tiburon for 10 years. Upon moving to Truckee, I taught eighth grade at Alder Creek Middle School and then fourth grade before joining the Truckee Elementary fifth grade staff.
Interests: When I’m not in Room 42, I love to spend my free time on the trails in Tahoe Donner. When there’s dirt, I love to trail run and when there’s snow, I am addicted to Nordic skiing. My other outdoor interests are mountain biking, downhill skiing, hiking, and backpacking. When inside, my hobbies are reading and making photo albums. I also spend a lot of time cheering my kids in their various activities. They play soccer, run cross country, play ice hockey, basketball, run track and play lacrosse. Finally, since I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA I’m a big Steeler and Penguin fan!
