Katie Kennedy Learn more about me

They call me "Katie Educatie." Two of my favourite ways to spend my time are learning with kids and baking up sweet treats in the kitchen. If I were a dessert I would be a funfetti cupcake with ribbons of pink buttercream reaching for the sky! I have been an elementary school educator for a few years now and an avid baker all my life. Baking is an interesting hobby because you can view your creation as a work of art, a math equation and a science experiment that is (hopefully!) good enough to eat! If I were not a teacher, I would definitely have my own retro-themed bakery. I also love making music! I play piano, a little ukulele and am hoping to take up the kalimba one of these days. I enjoy creative writing and crafting with paint, thread, or string. My teaching background is in both Mathematics and English. I believe you can achieve anything you think you can. Some people say the sky is the limit. I say, if you give it your all, the limit does not exist.
