    Hi! My name is Katie Shellhorn and I will be teaching 5th grade ELA (Reading and Writing) and Social Studies at Holt Elementary this year! I completed my undergrad coursework at Eastern Washington University studying Elementary Education with a focus on Literacy: Reading and Writing in 2016. I am originally from Spokane, Washington and recently moved to Tuscaloosa to be closer to my family and so my husband could attend law school at the University of Alabama. I have been married to my husband, Rusty, for almost three years and we are blessed to have a baby boy due in early September! My hobbies include reading, living a healthy lifestyle (I am also a certified personal trainer) and enjoying the outdoors with my husband. I am also a huge Alabama football fan - Roll Tide! Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and constantly made my younger brothers and my friends play "school" with me. I had amazing teachers throughout my elementary experience who made me fall in love with the art of teaching. I hope to bring passion, fun and care into my classroom and, most importantly, foster a love for the written word! I am so excited to begin this journey and thankful to be serving you and your students! Thank you for sharing your child with me and I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Holt Elementary!
