Hello! Welcome to 2nd Grade at Gettysburg Elementary School!
My name is Mrs. Katie Larson and I am the 2nd grade teacher. Being a third generation teacher in my family, I inherited a lifelong love of learning, and love for children. I truly enjoy my chosen profession and look forward to new adventures each and every day.
I graduated from Gettysburg High School and am very honored and proud to be teaching in my hometown, at a school I value greatly. I attended the University of South Dakota and Northern State University to earn my Bachelorís Degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. After a few years of teaching, I then went on to earn my Masterís Degree in Teaching and Learning from Northern State University.
My husband, Tony, and I have three children; Ashton, Ava, and Aiden. We also have two dogs at home, Scout and Bella. Our family loves spending time together, especially if itís outdoors.
