My name is Katherine Threadgould, and I will be the Learning Strategist for grades 4 and 5 at Wynn this year. I was born and raised in a small town in Alabama, but I have also lived in Washington, DC, Chicago, and Hong Kong. My husband and I have been married for 24 years, and we have two awesome children at home. My son, Liam, is a senior at Palo Verde High School and my daughter, Gemma, is a freshman. We also have a sweet little dog named Daisy and a mischievous cat named Dixie. I received my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Auburn University and began my teaching career in 1999. I have taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grades as well as GATE. I have previously taught in Alabama and Hong Kong, and this will be my seventh year teaching for the CCSD. I am currently pursuing a second Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership, and I am excited to be completing my administration internship this fall. I am thrilled to be a member of the Elaine Wynn Challengers team, and I am looking forward to working with all the amazing staff and students at our school. It’s going to be a stellar year!
