Ms. Katelyn Harmening
My name is Katelyn Harmening and I am thrilled to begin my third year teaching 6th grade math at SMS! I graduated from Athens State University in 2017 with a degree in Elementary Education and am currently pursuing my Master's degree at the University of West Alabama. I was born and raised in the Harvest/Monrovia area and I absolutely love getting to pour back into my community through teaching. My desire is to create a fun and meaningful learning experience for my students. As someone who struggled with math as a child, I have an even greater passion to create and design experiences that will help my students learn to love it.
In my free time, I enjoy relaxing by the pool, traveling, spoiling my two standard poodles (Ellie and Otis), and spending time with my family. I love all things chocolate, Chick-fil-A, and Target! I am an active member of my church, Mount Zion Baptist Church, and my relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important part of my life. Having no children myself means that I consider my students my students to be my kids! I love them all deeply and enjoy doing my best to care for them and take part in their lives. I absolutely love getting to see my students doing what they enjoy and am always thrilled to come watch them at recitals and games. I am looking forward to a great year in 6th grade math!
