Katie feels very fortunate to teach at EXPO because the students, parents and staff are extremely supportive. She loves to see the excitement her students have for learning! She is guided by one of her favorite Anne Frank quotes, "No one ever became poor by giving." This guides her professional practice because it encourages her to put her students' needs first.
