Katie van Kempen
My name is Katie and I am so excited to be working at Cayuse Prairie this year in the first grade class, helping Ms. Robin!
I was raised in Northern California, the oldest of three siblings. It was there that I met my husband. We moved to Washington about a year after we got married. We lived there 15 years until my husband received a great job offer here in the Flathead valley. We have been here a year and we love it. We live right around the corner from Cayuse Prairie where our two sons Hunter, 10 and Kai, 7 attend.
Last year I spent lots of time volunteering at Cayuse Prairie and remembered how much I love working with kids.
Our family loves boating and being outdoors with our two dogs, Nigel and Susan! We love animals and someday hope to have a farm with every animal imaginable. (Ok, so maybe that's really only my and Kai’s dream).
A few things about me:
I love all things Harry Potter.
Dr Pepper is my favorite drink.
I love to quote movies.
Leopard print is my favorite color, yes it's a color.
You will not catch me without a Carmex in my pocket.
I love the 80’s, especially the music and movies.
I love the sound of football or baseball on in the house.
Fall is my favorite season.
I still love naps.
I love my husband and my kids more than anything in this world!
