    Third Grade:
    English Language Arts
    A Little About My Teaching Career...
    My name is Katie Bobby, and I am excited to be starting my ninth year as a third grade teacher at Somerset Area School District. This is my fourteenth year teaching, and I am excited by the opportunity to be able to continue to focus exclusively on English Language Arts, a subject area that I have always been passionate about. I am looking forward to carrying the success of my past classes over to the coming years.
    On October 31, 2018, I received the surprise of a lifetime when I was named as a recipient of the Milken Educator Award, a national award for excellence in teaching. I was honored to receive the recognition, but I was even more excited to be given the opportunity to shine a spotlight on all of the good work being done here in the Somerset Area School District. I will be forever grateful to the administration and to my fellow educators at Eagle View for giving me a place to plant my roots and blossom as a teacher.
    A Little About My Own Education...
    I attended Bishop Carroll High School in Ebensburg, PA, before obtaining my B.S. in Elementary/Special Education from Saint Francis University in 2005. I took 8 additional education courses through Carlow University during the first few years of my teaching career, and I am currently working through graduate courses to obtain my Masters of Education in Instructional Design from Western Governer's University.
    A Little About Me...
    •  My current classroom theme is Star Wars. Princess Leia was one of my childhood heroes!
    • I enjoy drawing, painting, and creating! I've always wanted to illustrate children's books.
    • I like to bake cookies and decorate cakes/cupcakes. :)
    • I love, love, LOVE music. In fact, my three children have musically-inspired names: Lennon (after John Lennon of The Beatles), Van (after Van Morrison), and Rosalita (after my favorite Bruce Springsteen song).
    • My husband Mike is also an educator. He teaches high school math, and he rocks at it. :)
    • I have seven brothers and sisters, and I count them among my best friends.
    • Reading has always been one of my favorite pastimes, and now I get to encourage kids to take part in this beloved activity, too!! My heart smiles every time one of my students falls in love with a book!
