Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Housel

Hi! My name is Katie Housel. This is my eighth year of teaching. I graduated from Penn State in May of 2014 with a degree in Childhood and Early Adolescent Education. During my senior year at Penn State, I was a part of the Professional Development School Partnership with the State College Area School District. I was an intern in a first and second grade mulit-age classroom at Park Forest with Mrs. Hopkins. Seven years ago, I taught fourth grade students also at PFE. I am so happy and grateful to be a part of the Easterly Parkway community for many more school years to come! I enjoyed working with primary and intermediate-aged students over the past seven years and am excited for what my first graders will teach me this year. The best part about being a teacher is that I get to spend five days a week with young minds that are always ready to learn.

Professionally, I also obtained my Master's degree from Penn State in May 2018 with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Children's Literature.

I live in Port Matilda, PA with my mom (Tammy) and dad (Garret). I have lived in Port Matilda all my life. School and family keep me very busy but, in my free time, I enjoy being in the outdoors, watching wrestling and softball/baseball, relaxing at the Outer Banks, cooking and baking, reading, shopping, and exercising.
