Katie was a bright light that shone in the lives of her beloved students, family, and friends. Her ambition and energy for life and her faith in the Lord was truly admirable. Those who knew Katie were fortunate to experience her endless positive attitude and sweet personality. Her passion for teaching was evident in her love and caring for her students. She truly enjoyed teaching as a career because she wanted to make a difference in the lives she touched.
