Ms. Katie Szewczul Mitchell
Hello Wildcat Families!
My name is Katie Mitchell and I am extremely excited to be teaching at Walnut Creek this year! My husband and I recently got married and relocated to the Raleigh area from Milford, Connecticut and we are thrilled to be following our dream of living in the beautiful state of North Carolina!
This is my third year teaching and my first year at Walnut Creek! I attended Southern Connecticut State University and graduated with a BS in Elementary Education and a BA in English. To me, being an educator is a 24/7 lifestyle which is lived through the hearts and brilliant minds of young students! I will always be working to achieve success within my students and myself, and we will never stop learning. I am looking forward to meeting all of my students and their families and a fabulous year filled with positive growth at Walnut Creek!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy watching movies, cooking and baking, and spending time outdoors with my two dogs, Kobi and Logan. I also enjoy watching and going to sporting events with my husband to cheer on our favorite teams: the LA Lakers, the Minnesota Vikings, and UNC Tar Heel Basketball!
