Mrs. Simpson


My name is Katie Simpson. I am starting my 7th year of teaching, and can't wait to learn all about 4th grade!  I grew up in Bellevue, Washington and went through a Spanish Immersion program in the Bellevue School District. I am bilingual in both English and Spanish!

I started my career in the Issaquah School District, before moving to Colorado for my husband's doctorate program. I taught for 2 years in Denver in both English and Spanish before moving back to Seattle. 

Now I am settling into my 4th year at Highland Terrace, and have LOVED becoming a part of this community! I am so fortunate to be at such an amazing school! I look forward to getting to know you all better! :)
