My name is Mrs. Katherine Finke. This is my first year at Presentation BVM and I am very excited to be a part of this school community. I earned my Bachelor of Education from Gwynedd University and I am entering into my 16th year of teaching at the elementary level. I have taught several grades at the elementary level, but most of my experience has been in fourth and fifth-grade classrooms. I have a great passion for teaching and will work hard to help my students grow spiritually, academically, and socially. Outside of teaching I love spending time with my family. My husband and I have four children, whom we are very proud of and this summer we welcomed our first grandchild, which has been an amazing experience in this new role. We have three dogs, two Golden Retrievers and a Dachshund, who are all a wonderful part of our family as well. For fun, I enjoy any and all time with my family. I love to swim, play volleyball, tennis, and biking. I am always trying to find projects to paint or make and love when I discover new ideas and projects.
