Hello! Welcome to 2nd Grade at Gettysburg Elementary School!

My name is Mrs. Katie Larson. This is my 7th year teaching second grade, and my 11th year of teaching altogether. I have previously taught 1st grade, kindergarten, and preschool as well. 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 Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. After a few years of teaching, I then went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Teaching and Learning from Northern State University.

My husband, Tony, and I have three children. Ashton is in the 6th grade, Ava is in the 4th grade, and Aiden is in the 1st grade. We also have two dogs at home, Scout and Bella. Our family loves spending time together, especially if it’s outdoors.


Classroom Rules and Expectations


I expect ALL students to behave appropriately in the classroom, hallways, restrooms, cafeteria, special area classes, the playground, and in every other area of the school building.

  1. Work quietly. Do not disturb others who are working.
  2. When the teacher is talking, be quiet and listen.
  3. Raise your hand and wait to be called on before speaking.
  4. Respect your classmates, teachers, and school. Treat them with kindness in your words and actions.
  5. Don’t hit, kick, or touch anyone else with your hands, feet, or any other object.
  6. Always walk quietly in the classroom and halls.
