Mrs. Katie Potter

I currently teach second grade at The Wheatlands Elementary School. Prior to joining The Wheatlands in 2005 as a first grade teacher, I taught first grade for three years at Immaculate Conception Grade School in Elmhurst, Ill.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from the University of Dayton, in Dayton, Ohio. I also hold a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Olivet Nazarene University, Bourbonnais. I continued my education and completed a master’s degree in reading instruction from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. I am a certified reading specialist for kindergarten through 12th grade.

I absolutely love teaching first graders and can’t wait for a wonderful year filled with learning and fun.
