Hello! My name is Katie Kortuem, and I am thrilled to continue my role on the 2nd grade team at Rocklin Academy Gateway for the 4th year in a row. I look forward to partnering with families, colleagues, and the community, to provide a fun-filled and enriching year for my students. I value the power of education and enjoy fostering an environment where children can grow and succeed. I can’t wait for the year to begin!
I graduated from Sacramento State with my BA in Child Development in May of 2013, and received my teaching credential from UC Davis in June 2014. In March 2015, I completed my MA in Education from UC Davis. I was born and raised in Redding, CA, but moved to the Sacramento area to continue my education in 2011. After living here for 6 years, I have truly grown to love the surrounding areas. In my free time I love to spend time with my dogs and family, travel, eat sushi, and shop at Target!
