Dr. Katherine Belvin
Hello! My name is Katie Belvin and I am the music teacher at both FAME Academy at Brookhill and iAcademy at Athens Elementary. I am looking forward to this year and hope that through music we will have fun, be creative, and form a lifelong appreciation for the arts!
My previous degrees are in music performance (clarinet) and I have taught middle school, high school, and college-aged students. After having kids of my own I realized how much I wanted to teach our elementary-aged students so I went back to UNA to get my teaching certification. I graduated in December of 2017 and began working here in Athens city in January of 2018.
I graduated high school and college from my hometown of Cookeville, TN. My husband, Cory Belvin, grew up in Lexington, AL and we met when we were getting our undergraduate degree at Tennessee Tech University - Also the Golden Eagles :) We were so happy for the opportunity to move back to this area and be closer to family. We live in Madison, AL with our 7 year old daughter, Hannah, and 2 year old son, Hudson.
I am so excited for a great school year!
