Miss Katie

My name is Katie Russell and I teach the four-day-a-week 4s afternoon class. I graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. degree in Child Development and Family Studies.  I have worked with a wide range of ages of children, but preschoolers are my favorite.

I am a lifelong Lutheran.  My husband and I actually grew up going to the same church and were married there and had our son baptized there. My husband, Alan, and I have been married since 1996 and have lived in Naperville since 2003 after having lived in Lafayette, Indianapolis, Chicago, and Woodridge.  We have a son, Ben, and a dog named Pippa. I enjoy running, baking, reading, and spending time with my family.  My favorite food is chocolate chip cookies and my favorite color is orange.
