My name is Katie Gudgeon and I teach fifth grade. I grew up on a dairy farm near Viroqua, Wisconsin and got my education degree from the University of Wisconsin—Platteville. I have over ten years of teaching experience and love it here at Spence Elementary! I enjoy gardening, waterskiing, quilting, cooking and baking, reading, music, shopping, watching movies, and going for walks with my Golden Retriever, Chief. A few of my favorite things about teaching are the curiosity of children, sharing the joy of books and learning, watching children grow and develop, laughing and being silly, and that every day is different. Another passion of mine is facilitating Cooking Club for fourth and fifth grade students here at Spence.
