Meet the Teachers:
My name is Katie Duggin, and I want to welcome you to the Yellow Duck classroom at Calhoun Pre-K! I am so excited to have you in class this year! We are going to learn a lot and have so much fun!
Originally from Manchester, TN, my family and I moved to Calhoun in 2014. My husband, Jason, works with beef cattle extension for the University of Georgia. We have two wonderful sons who both attend Calhoun Middle School. I can't forget to mention that we have a golden retriever named Hondo! Family time is my favorite time, and we like to spend it playing outside, worshiping at River Bend Church of Christ, and watching football!
I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Early Childhood Education from the University of Tennessee. I took some time off when my babies were born, but this will be my eleventh year of teaching Pre-K. I believe with all my heart that children do not care how much you know until they know how much you care, and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child this year!
Feel free to contact me anytime by email at email@example.com or by our class Remind account. Let's make it the best year ever! Go Jackets!
