Third Grade

Katherine Abbey

Education:  
I attended Austin College, where I received both a BA in Spanish and a Master of Arts in Teaching.  I am certified EC-6 and ESL.

Bio:  I was born and raised here in Fort Worth.  I am the proud "mama" to a boy, of the four-legged variety, named MacGregor (Mac for short).  I enjoy reading, watching movies, dancing, and singing.  After having the great fortune of substituting last year in second grade, I am so glad that I have been made a part of the Lily B. family.  I am looking forward to this school year and working with such great staff, students, and parents!

Experience:
I have been teaching for 25 years in grades K-5. I have taught in many different parts of the country including New Orleans, Washington DC, Maryland, and my home state of Arkansas. In addition to teaching, I served as an Instructional Specialist and Literacy coach in Maryland, and the Fort Worth ISD.

Education: I have a Bachelors of Science in Education from the University of Arkansas with a minor in Early Childhood Education. EC-4/ESL Certified.

Bio: I am married to my best friend. We were a military family for several years as my husband was a Navy pilot, so we have lived in many interesting places! We have five children that have graduated from college and are now married and beginning families of their own. Our three sons are in the Air Force, our oldest daughter is an RN in Oncology, and our youngest daughter is a teacher in Dallas. We have lived in Fort Worth for 10 years now, and love it here!

My hobbies include flying with my husband, being outside, fishing, swimming, hiking, and attending Razorback football games every opportunity we have. 

I am thrilled to be teaching at Lily B with such a wonderful staff, and looking forward to a great year!
