I am entering my 5th year of teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, 3rd Grade, and 4th Grade. This will be my first year teaching 2nd Grade. I am excited about the new adventure that we will be embarking on this year. I am looking forward to helping students continue on the journey of life-long learning.



My name is Katie Mathis. My husband Jeremy and I have been married for 13 years. We have one amazing daughter, Sarah who is 11 years old. She is in the 6th grade at Bay Haven Charter Academy. She loves playing the piano and reading everything. We also have a crazy Boston Terrier, Oreo. We love spending the weekends in Gainesville cheering on the Gators.

I grew up in Panama City, graduating from Rutherford High School in 1998. I attended Florida State University (although I am a huge Gator Fan) and received my Bachelor of Science Degree in 2005. I have been teaching for 5 years, 1 in Bay County and 4 in Jackson.

I love teaching at Cottondale and helping the students begin their journey of life-long learning. Second Grade is a wonderful time in your child's life. This year will be marked with many memorable moments. I look forward to making your child's second grade year a year to remember full of wonderful experiences.

Please remember that YOU are your child's first and primary teacher!! I encourage you to be actively involved in their education and am here to help you in any way possible. I am look forward a fantastic year!!

Go Hornets!!
