Mrs. Katie Christensen
7th Grade Literacy-7A Team
Hello, my name is Katie Christensen and I teach 7th grade literacy on the maroon team at Prairie Ridge. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a double major in elementary and early childhood education. My endorsements are in reading and middle school education. I completed my Masters Degree in Education through Viterbo University.
After graduating, I taught 4th grade in San Antonio, Texas. I started my teaching career in Ankeny in 1999 at Northwest Elementary teaching 3rd grade. I spent four years teaching fourth grade at East Elementary and then four years teaching fourth grade at Crocker Elementary. I have been teaching 7th grade literacy since 2009.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. My husband, Ben, teaches at Prairie Ridge. We have a daughter, Gwyneth, and a son, Charlie.
