Katie Ahearn believes in education that promotes meeting the child where they are at after addressing her own adult self first. She is an educator who loves the next challenge, and to go against the status quo. State officials, district personnel, and any other observers who walk into my planning, classrooms, and trainings describe it as innovative and transformational because of the connection and love that exudes the environment. Education is truly the great equalizer, when schools are safe, connected, and work to solve problems.
Katie has experience in early learning centers and preschools with VPK and Head Start. Katie has experience teaching and coaching in public schools with Kindergarten through sixth grade, along with training administration and other support personnel.
Katie specializes in inner city schools who experience challenging behaviors, have chronic trauma, and work in schools where gangs and violence are prevalent. Katie’s niche is turnaround schools, who are under the eye of the state with a short time frame to successfully transform.
Katie is a Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor and is certified for grades Kindergarten through sixth in all subjects. She is also ESOL certified.
Katie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and is pursuing a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.
