Greetings! This year I will be teaching Math II and Math III. It is my 1st year with the School District of La Crosse. I earned my Bachelors Degree from Carthage College, Masters Degree from Cardinal Stritch University, and am currently working on my Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction (with a Mathematics Education emphasis) from Indiana University. Prior to teaching in La Crosse I taught at The Prairie School in Racine, WI.
I enjoy spending any free time I have with my husband, Dean, and our puppy, Roulette. In September we will be welcoming a new addition to our family. Details coming soon!
Katie Fries is currently in her third year of teaching General Music, Vocal Music, Show Choir, and Theater at Lincoln/SOTA II/Coulee Montessori. After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Music Education from Drake University, she worked as a Merchandise Intern for Walt Disney World. She enjoys visiting her “second home” as often as she can! Outside of school, Ms. Fries is heavily involved in productions at La Crosse Community Theater as both a performer and music director.
I am an 8th grade Cross Categorical Special Education at Lincoln Middle School this year. I live in New Albin, IA with my husband and 4 sons. In my free time, I love watching the Milwaukee Brewers and Iowa Hawkeyes. I also enjoy watching my kids participate in all of their sports that they are involved with.
