Katherine Hainer

My name is Katherine Hainer, and I am one of the middle school math teacher's.
I grew up in England, have lived in Colorado for 8 years, and am the oldest of 3 siblings. I have 2 cats, and 1 dog. I graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a degree in Educational Studies. This is my second full year teaching, and I am so excited for the amazing things to come!
If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out. I will also be available every Monday and Wednesdays from 3:30-4:00p in my classroom, if you want to talk or if you need some homework or other math help. Contact me at [email protected].
