Hello! My name is Ms. Klatt and I am beyond thrilled to be your child’s fourth-grade teacher this upcoming school year. I wanted to take a moment to give you a little background on me. I grew up in the Bay Area in Northern California and attended the University of Oregon for my undergraduate degree in Sociology, with minors in both Communications and Business. I love learning, exploring new places, athletics, staying active, trying different cuisines, crafting, being with kids, and playing with my puppy. Above all else, I love to help others succeed.
After five years in event planning and marketing, I realized I wanted a profession that gave me a greater opportunity to give back to our society–especially to its children, who are the future of our country and who have always been dear to my heart. It has long been my dream to become an elementary school teacher and I am currently working towards earning my Masters in Education at the University of San Diego.
As your child’s fourth-grade teacher, my ultimate professional goal is to provide a safe place for each student to learn–and have fun doing it–in a welcoming environment. I believe in encouraging teamwork while always honoring the unique gifts of each child. Keeping all students engaged through creative lesson-plans and thoughtful class-structure, while encouraging healthy communication, will lead us all to success. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Looking forward to a great year!
