Hello, my name is Catherine "Katie" Arzate. I am 30 years old. This is my first year teaching in an Elementary school, where I currently teach 4th grade. I am enrolled at Grand Canyon University in the Elementary Education Master's Degree program. I taught pre-school for 12 years before coming to WES.
In my spare time, I enjoy going to Disneyland, boating and shopping. I enjoy riding my bike along the coast, or catching some sun on the beach. I enjoy TV shows and movies with a lot of drama involved. My favorite TV shows are Chicago PD and Chicago Fire. I do not have much time to read, but my favorite author is Nicholas Sparks.
I was born and raised in southern California, but decided I wanted to live in a smaller/slower-paced community. I am happy to be here and look forward to an exciting year.
