Teachers - Middle School
I am Katherine Buck and this is my third year teaching at Westpark Middle School. I am beyond excited to be back this year, and feel so lucky to get to start the year off with students heading back to the classroom.
This year, I will be teaching Social Studies 6, English Language Arts 6 and Social Studies 7. To keep it simple, I refer to myself as a Humanities teacher. On top of that, I will be working part time in the Pathways and Foundations classrooms. For all Humanities courses, I will be using Google Classroom most often to post assignments and materials that are important to the course. Students and parents/guardians will be able to access this site from anywhere, which I believe will help ensure success in every class.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family. Any time it is possible, my husband Matt, my daughter Juniper, my son Griffin and I love to head west and explore the mountains. We also have a small zoo that lives in our house that consists of a big dog (Orwell), and three cats (Hushpuppy, Leonard and Kion). Reading is another passion of mine, and in true grandma-at-heart fashion I also love to crochet and do needlework when I have down time. I am so excited for the upcoming school year, and getting to know each student in all of my classes. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
