Hello! My name is Katie Deans and I'm a fourth grade Literacy teacher at Urbana Elementary School. This will be my ninth year teaching, and my ninth year at Urbana City Schools. I started as a paraprofessional for a year and then was an Intervention Specialist for seven years. I'm very excited to move into my new role as a homeroom teacher this year!
I graduated from Urbana University in the Winter of 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education (K-3) and Intervention Specialist (K-12) as well as a Reading Endorsement (K-12). I went back to Urbana University in 2017 and earned my Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement for grades 4-5.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you to help your child grow as a reader and writer!
