Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Katie Sullivan and I love teaching PreK at GCES! I am a Bulldog at heart and always have been. I attended GCES, GCMS, and GCHS and graduated in 2015. I was really involved during my high school years and participated in anything I could fit into my busy schedule. I am a graduate of Auburn University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I loved my time in Auburn and will always cheer on the Tigers. War Eagle! I love this quote by Loris Malaguzzi, "We need to define the role of the adult, not as a transmitter but as a creator of relationships- relationships not only between people but also between things, between thoughts, with the environment." I love this because it defines the teacher as a facilitator, not a director and lecturer. My job is to facilitate learning for the children in my class in a way that allows them to come alongside me and really take ownership in their own education. I strive to create a cooperative learning environment, not a coercive one.
This is my third year teaching PreK at Geneva County Elementary School.
