This will be Katie Self’s eighth year teaching elementary art. She has spent her entire career in the Kansas City area, graduating from UMKC and teaching at KCK public schools. She lives right here in Volker with her husband Brett, her 10 month old daughter, Daisy and her elderly Puggle, George. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to be the neighborhood art teacher at Gordon Parks! As an Art History major she can’t wait to teach the kids about new and diverse artists. She especially enjoys working on projects that involve clay and paint. The messier the better! She is really looking forward to meeting the entire staff and our students in August!
