Hello, my name is Katie Oppenheimer! This is my third year at Ellis and my fourth year teaching kindergarten in DPS. I am passionate about creating a community for our youngest learners where children can continue to discover their own interests while challenging themselves to explore new modes of communication. I appreciate the cultures, social-emotional needs, histories, and languages of our community in order to see the whole child. Outside of the classroom, you can find me outdoors, hiking, biking, practicing yoga or skiing!
