Ms. Katelyn Harmening

My name is Katelyn Bristow (formerly Miss Harmening) and I am thrilled to begin my fourth year teaching 6th grade math on the yellow team at SMS! I graduated from Athens State University in 2017 with a degree in Elementary Education and graduated from the University of West Alabama this summer with a Master's degree in Learning, Design, and Technology. 


I was born and raised in the Harvest/Monrovia area and I absolutely love getting to pour back into my community through teaching! I recently married my best friend, Phillip, and we have a dog named Dixie. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, being involved in church, reading, and traveling. My desire as a teacher is to create fun and meaningful learning experiences for ALL of my students in hopes that they will learn to love math as much as I do. I am looking forward to a fantastic year in 6th grade math!
