Art Education - Mrs. Whelan

Kat Whelan

My name is Kat, and I am very excited to be the brand-spanking-new Art Teacher at Soaring Hawk Elementary!

I went to CSU for Art Education for 3 years, but when my husband (then boyfriend) got a job in this area after college, I transferred to an online university, and graduated with a BS in Organizational Leadership.

My three incredible kids have been going to SHE for the last few years. Our family has appreciated the sense of community that we have gained as part of this school. We have made life-long friends, had the best teachers, and been grateful for the support we have received.

The last couple of years I have been trying to explore my artistic side, again. I have been art journaling, taking pottery classes, and collaging. When I heard that the beloved Ms. D was moving on to a position at another school, I jumped on the opportunity to earn my Alternative Teacher Licensure while teaching  at the school my kids go to, and we have come to love.  I’m already loving watching our kiddos get creative in the Art Classroom, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds!
