Hello students and families, my name is Katie Wells and I am thrilled to be an art teacher at York Junior High! This will be my eighth (and hopefully the best) year of teaching and I can't imagine having any other career. I truly love what I do and work very hard to share what I know about art and art history with each and every student...regardless of their previous experience with the arts.
I am not originally from Texas, but I got here as soon as I could! My father was in the military so our family moved several times growing up, however I spent the majority of my life living outside of Denver, CO. I attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO (Go Rams!) where I earned a B.A. in Art Education. There I explored many different media including painting (oil and acrylic), drawing, sculpture, pottery, photography, printmaking, fibers, and more! I was the art teacher at a K-6 public charter school outside of Denver and I loved it! I thought I would teach there forever.....until I had the amazing opportunity to be in the Houston area. When I first moved to Texas I taught 6-8 grade art at a middle school in Spring Branch ISD. After living in The Woodlands for a few years now,
I am never leaving! Being from Colorado, I love being surrounded by all the beautiful scenery. I have a 7 year old son named Weston who is a second grader at Snyder Elementary. When I am not at school I love to travel, cook (but really just eat), watch movies, laugh with my family, and be creative!!!
It's a great day to be in CISD!...and an even better day to be at YORK!!!
