• Welcome to Fourth Grade

    My name is Mrs. Kat Short and I'm so excited to be your child's Math and Science teacher this year!

    I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This is my fifth 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, Laci, and Ziggy. 

    I love reading the Harry Potter series, writing, and playing my ukulele in my free time. But more importantly, I am passionate about teaching and helping students become enthusiastic about learning. 

    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 and science 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!
