Mrs. Kate Armstrong
Welcome! My name is Kate Armstrong and I am a 3rd grade teacher.
I earned my B.S. degree from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I earned my Master's Degree from University of West Alabama. I am pursuing National Board Certification. I began working for Athens City Schools in 2008.
I am married to B.J. Armstrong a teacher and coach at Athens High School. We have two children Holden and Addison. We are big Golden Eagle Fans!! You will see us at all the Golden Eagle Football games on Friday nights. In my free time, I love to run 5ks and exercise.
I love having a lot of fun in school and especially in our classroom. I love to celebrate wonderful behavior and hard work. I also believe in having a classroom where every student feels safe, comfortable, happy and cared for. I want each and every student to succeed to his or her highest potential and I will do everything I can to make that happen. I became a teacher because even as a small child I loved to play school. Watching children grow and develop each year is a driving force for why I have a passion for education. My hope is that the children in my classroom realize their purpose and develop a belief in their own ability that they can do anything they set their mind to.
