5th Grade Teacher
My name is Ms. Katherine Dixon, and I am the new Fifth Grade teacher at Catholic East Elementary. I’m so excited to be here! This quick note will serve as an introduction and let you know how to contact me.
First, a little about my background: I am originally from Mississippi, where I attended a Christian school from kindergarten through twelfth grade. After graduating from Belhaven University with a bachelor’s degree in 2014, I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of years abroad teaching English as a foreign language in St. Petersburg, Russia. I moved to Wisconsin in 2018 to obtain a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. While I was there, I taught two English courses per semester. I completed my degree earlier this year, and am happy to be in this wonderful city and work in this great school community.
Here are some fun facts about me:
My favorite things to do in my free time are reading, cross stitching, and playing video games.
My favorite season is winter, and I am completely obsessed with snow! That’s why I keep choosing to live in cold, snowy places like Russia and Wisconsin.
I love to travel, and I’ve climbed the Great Wall of China twice.
