My name is Catie Whitt. I am the literacy coach at Robinson Elementary. This is my first year in the Kirkwood School District and I couldn't be more proud to join this community of learners. I have been teaching for twelve years. I began my career in the Francis Howell School district. I have taught third, fourth, and first grades. I was also a literacy coach in the same school district.
I graduated from LIndenwood University in 2008 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. As I began my career in education I quickly found out that I needed to learn more about instructional practices in the area of reading to help students succeed. I received my Masters degree in Reading in 2015. I believe that every child has the right to equitable literacy experiences to enhance their future.
My husband Jason and I have been married for 10 years. Our oldest son is named Sawyer and he is in third grade in the Rockwood School District. Our four year old daughter is named Margo and she loves gymnastics. Our youngest son, George, is two and loves to ride in his battery powered car. We recently lost our dog, Abner, after 14 wonderful years with him. We hope to have a pet addition to our family soon.
In my spare time I enjoy taking trips with my family and building lasting memories with them. I enjoy winter and all of the wonderful outdoor opportunities it brings like skiing, visiting the mountains, ice-fishing, etc. I love sports of all kinds, baking, reading, building and putting things together, and being outdoors.
I look forward to learning about all of you and building relationships with your families this school year.
