Mrs. Katherine Dalton - 4th Grade English Language Arts and Social Studies
Dear Parents and Students:
I am Katherine Dalton. I am excited to join Whispering Pines Elementary as a 4th grade RELA teacher this school year (2022/2023). I have been an educator for the past 8 years. I have worked as a teacher in both 3rd and 4th grade. I am certified to teach EC-6, ESL and Gifted and Talented students.
Before I moved into teaching as my second career, I worked in retail marketing for various businesses here in Houston. I was originally born in California and raised there until I was 10 years old and then my family moved to East Texas. I have been a Texan ever since! I moved to Houston when I was 21 to complete my education and I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from the University of Houston.
I am blessed to be married and I have 3 amazing children. Two of our kids are grown and the last one is beginning her junior year at K-Park in Kingwood.
I began my teaching career as a para-educator with Humble ISD and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to rejoin Humble ISD and the Whispering Pines Elementary team. I love working with children and helping them grow academically, socially and emotionally. I look forward to a fantastic school year working with my new Panda team and I especially look forward to meeting my new students and their parents.
