Katrina has been working with students pre-K to grade 12 since 2004. She currently teaches in Western New York while creating resources for herself and other educators.
Katrina tries to act as a facilitator of knowledge toward her students rather than the traditional, formal teacher and authority figure. She believes that students should have a strong role in their own learning experiences and learning by doing will ultimately teach them more about the content, themselves, and the world around them.
