My name is Katie Johannes and I am so excited to join the EPiC team! I have taught 2nd, 4th and 5th grades as well as preschool. Most recently, I have worked in early childhood education as the director of Hilltop Preschool and oversaw the management of Cerner Kids Learning Centers. Throughout my career, students have been the heart of all I do. I can't wait to see how I can partner with families and connect with students to see every child meet their potential!
I am married and have three kids who have all attended Liberty Public Schools. Emily is in her 4th year at UMKC, Grace is a sophomore at Trinity University in San Antonio and Sam is a senior at LHS. I also have 2 crazy rescue dogs - Decker is an 8 year old lab mix and Basil is our 6 month old pandemic puppy. I love to spend time with my family, read, work in the yard, take walk and spend time with friends eating yummy food. We have a great year ahead of us and I can't wait to meet you!
