Welcome to Ms. Polychron’s 2nd Grade!!
Welcome to 2nd Grade! My name is Katherine Polychron, and I will be teaching Math and Science this year. I grew up on the East Coast (Connecticut, Massachusetts, and North Carolina), and I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. After moving to Colorado in 2001, I attended the Metropolitan State University of Denver and received another degree in Elementary Education. I taught 2nd and 3rd grades for 5 years in The Cherry Creek School District in Denver until I had my own children. I moved to Texas 2 years ago from Littleton, CO, and though I miss the beautiful mountains, I absolutely love Texas. I have 2 children, Ava and Connor, who are the loves of my life- and the sweetest 9 year old black lab named Lilly. Ava is in 3rd grade this year, and Connor is in 2nd grade. Outside of the classroom, I am an avid runner, love to play tennis, and enjoy drawing, painting, and jewelry making. However, my real passion is connecting with kids and helping them grow and succeed. I couldn’t be more thrilled about this school year and look so forward to getting to know my students and their families!
