My name is Mrs. Kat Short and I'm so excited to be your child's Math teacher this year!
I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Kim Ballance, our Reading teacher, and Mr. Doug Wardwell, our Science and Social Studies teacher!!! We are thrilled to be working together.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This is my sixth year in Currituck County Schools as I previously worked with 4th and 5th grade in Dare County and Guilford County. I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful school! I am originally from Walkersville, Maryland but moved to Kitty Hawk in 2007. I currently live in Moyock with my husband Ken, my daughter Isla and our pets. We have a yellow Labrador Retriever named Haley and three cats named Teddy, Ma'am, and Ziggy. I was Teacher of the Year in 2020-2021. I was so excited to be nominated by my peers and to represent such an incredible school!
I love watching movies, shopping at Target, and hanging out with my family and friends in my free time. But more importantly, I am passionate about teaching and helping students become enthusiastic about learning. Math is my favorite subject and I love teaching students strategies to be successful in math.
I look forward to learning and growing together as a class throughout this year. We are going to have a wonderful time exploring different math topics. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns you may have. I will also be using ClassDojo this year so you may contact me through there as well!
