Dear Parents and Students,
My name is Katie Formisano and I will be your child’s fifth grade teacher this year. I am so honored and excited to begin this year with your family. I believe education is a joint effort of the family and teacher. I can’t wait to meet you and your children and have an amazing year exploring the world of fifth grade.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin where I met my husband David. I started teaching 5th grade in Wisconsin. After my husband and I got married we moved to Arizona and have lived here ever since. I then taught fifth and sixth grade until the birth of my first child. I have two beautiful children Benjamin, who graduated from Corona del Sol in 2018, and Caroline who is currently attending Corona. For the past seven years I have been an instructional assistant at Kyrene de la Mariposa. As my son moves on to college this year I decided to get back to the classroom to pursue what I love to do again, TEACHING!
Some of my favorite hobbies include visiting our family cabin in Pinetop, traveling, reading books, crafting, and spending time with my family and friends. I have many blessings to celebrate each and every day. I count you all as new ones.
I look forward to working with you this year.
