Hello! My name is Katie, and I’ve been in Bloomington-Normal all my life. I am a freshman at Heartland Community College, and plan on transferring to ISU after I have received my associates degree at HCC. I am majoring in middle school education with endorsements in social studies and science. I have a huge passion for kids, and I love to help people. Some of my favorite things to do are paint and read, and I spend a lot of time volunteering with the youth program at my church. I enjoy working with your children and I’m excited to get to know your families.
