All About Mrs. Katie
History: I grew up in Kaplan. I even went to school at Kaplan Elementary when I was little! I have one sister and she came to Kaplan Elementary, too. I also attended Rene Rost Middle School and Kaplan High School.
Education: I graduated from Kaplan High School in 1995. After graduation, I attended USL. Right before I graduated from college it became the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education in December of 1999. I decided that I wanted to learn more, so I went back to school again. In December of 2005, I graduated from UL a second time. I obtained my Masters in the field of Gifted Education with a minor in Educational Technology. I also have participated in as many educational inservices or classes as I could! If there is a class and I can take it, I do!
Family: My mother and father still live in Kaplan and have been wonderful inspirations to me! I have one sister. Her name is Kristie. In November or 2007, I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl. We named her Alyssa. Alyssa and I live in Kaplan. In March 2012, I married Eric Primeaux. He also came to school in Kaplan! I have two wonderful step-daughters named Emily and Mia.
Teaching: I became a teacher in January 1999. I worked at Katherine Drexel Elementary. In August of 2000, I returned to teach in Vermilion Parish. I began teaching at Eaton Park Elementary and continued there until August 2008. In August 2008, I returned to teach at the Elementary School that helped me become who I am today. I knew I wanted to teach even when I was in high school. I had many wonderful teachers who inspired me such as Mrs. Guillory, Mrs. Vincent, and even Mrs. Anne Fontana (my first grade teacher). Everyday when I get to see the light in students eyes when they learn a new concept, I know this is the perfect profession for me!
