Katie Dean
Position: 3rd Grade Teacher
Phone: (708)839-1444 x232

My name is Katie Dean. I have been teaching for five years. I am happy to say that three of those years have been here at Trinity Lutheran School. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I have a Language Arts, Reading, and Social Studies endorsement.

My three years at Trinity have been spent teaching 3rd grade. I absolutely love teaching this grade level because during this year the children develop so much of their academic, spiritual, emotional, and social skills. I am so lucky and privileged to be able to witness such great accomplishments by each of my students. In 3rd grade we do a family tree project at the end of the year; which is my favorite project! This project brings everything that the children have learned all throughout 3rd grade into one project. It also lets their creativeness and inventiveness shine through.
