Katy Weber – 7th/8th grade advisor


Hello to all of the LDI parents and students, as well as the La Crosse community members.  I want to start by saying that I am very excited to join the LDI team as the new teacher/advisor.  I am from Antigo, which is in north central Wisconsin.  My family owns a potato farm which I grew up on for the first half of my life.  My dad and the farm taught me what it meant to work hard for what you have and that is something instilled in me yet today.  Music has always been a large part of my life, and in high school I played saxophone in the marching band and took piano lessons.  I was also involved in soccer and clubs such as the national honors society, Job’s Daughters, and drama club.  After high school, I attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where I majored in Chemistry Education with a Mathematics Education Minor.  My hobbies include playing cards, playing piano when I get the chance, going hiking on the bluffs and going fishing in the summer.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me at  I am looking forward to a great rest of the year!
