Hello, I am Katie Poulsen, and I am the 6th grade science teach for the Orange team! I grew up in San Diego and have lived in California, Montana, Washington, and Colorado. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education K-8 with a Minor in Early Childhood Edcuation from Montana State Univeristy-Bozeman.  In 2018, I earned my Masters of Arts in Educational Administration from Argosy University- Denver.  I am begining my 13th year teaching in D49.  I have taught grades 3-4 at Evans International Elementary and 5th grade, Educational Technology K-5, and Gifted & Talented at Bennett Ranch Elementary.  This is my first year teaching at the middle school level. 

My husband and I have been married for 28 years. We have two children who have attended and graduated from D49 schools. My husband and I love to take trips to Diseny parks, go on cycling adventures, and eat at local restaurants.  In my free time, I love to cook, read, and make handmade cards. 

I love science; I am extremely excited to share this passion with my students. I hope to instill a love of learning, to cutlivate curiosity, and encourage all of my students to stay curious!
