Hello!! My name is Kate Pratt. I am so excited to start my 5th year teaching at Ramsey Elementary!
I love teaching second grade and believe in creating a comfortable, fun, and exciting classroom environment. I welcome open participation and encourage kids to express their thoughts and opinions. Here at Ramsey, it is such a joy to integrate science throughout all our curriculum. We have fun exploring weather, organisms, rocks, and animals with the kids during their second-grade year!
I have a wonderful husband, Billy, and we have three children, Will (6th grader at Canfield Middle School), Maddy (4th grader at Ramsey), and Vinny (1st grader at Ramsey)! I grew up in California and graduated from California State University, Chico State in 2002 with a degree in Recreation Administration. My husband and I took an adventure and lived in Alaska for 4 years before moving to Coeur d' Alene (my husband's hometown). I went back to school and received my teaching certification in Elementary Education from Lewis-Clark State College. I enjoy spending time with my husband, kids, and dog. We spend our time camping, taking road trips, swimming at the lake, and cruising in our boat. We live on 20 acres and have a "hobby farm" with pigs, goats, chickens, guinea fowl, dogs, barn cats, and of course a bearded dragon! I love raising my children in a country where they can explore and be outdoors! I enjoy gardening, baking and canning, and doing anything crafty in my free time.
I am so excited to be at such an amazing school. Second grade is a fun-filled and exciting year! Let the learning begin!
