Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Katy Winters
Hi Preschool Families,
I'm Katy Winters and I love teaching little people! I have been in education since 1999 and have taught special education to students from ages 3 to 24. I earned my Bachelor's degree at Regis University where I earned my teaching certification, Colorado Western University, where I earned my special education generalist degree, and am completing my Master's in Early Childhood Special Education at The University of Northern Colorado.
I have 4 grown sons, 1 grown daughter, 3 ganddaughters and 2 grandsons under 6 years old. They are spread all across the globe as my oldest son is a fighter pilot in the Air Force, stationed in Japan. My husband and I live happily in the Black Forest with our 4 dogs and 2 horses.
My teaching philosophy comes from Dr. Suess- If you don't learn how to play, how can you learn how to learn? I believe we can learn so much from our young students as we strive to get them ready for their future learning adventures. As their first experience in education, I want to make their preschool years exciting, fun, and filled with wonderful experiences as they learn from us and from one another. Silly is just part of our schedule every day!
I look forward to our school year!
