Miss Kathryn Conklin
Hi! My name is Katie Conklin. I am a first grade teacher at Beach Elementary school. I am so excited to come to work every day and work with my first grade students and fellow staff at Beach Elementary. This is my second year in the Round Lake Area School District, and I have greatly enjoyed my time here and have learned so much.
I got my elementary education degree from Northern Illinois University in May of 2017, but have been working with children much before that. I worked as an early childhood teacher during my time in college and after graduation worked in the district at Indian Hill Elementary as a teaching assistant for students with specific challenges in reading and math. I have ambitions to work toward my masters degree and eventually work as a reading specialist because teaching reading is a huge passion of mine!
Personally, in my free time, I enjoy photography, crafting, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. I come from a big family and my passion to become a teacher started from teaching and spending time with my younger siblings as a child.
If you have any questions or concerns or would like to learn more about me, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.
