Teacher Biography

Our Teacher is Miss Katie Kotson.

Hello families of Our Lady of Peace School! My name is Katie Kotson, and this will be my third year at Our Lady of Peace School as a full time teacher. I am a graduate of Wheeling Jesuit University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I am pursuing a Master’s degree from the same institution because I love to continue to learn about my vocation. I am a certified teacher for the state of West Virginia in grades Kindergarten to Sixth.

I am blessed to have found a teaching position at a school that shares my same values. I grew up in a big Catholic family, so my faith is extremely important to me. I am driven by this quote from Saint Teresa of Calcutta: “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” That is my personal mission every day with my students. I strive to create a learning environment that encourages students to learn and love.
