George Lucas Educational Foundation

Katie Spear


I am a 4th and 5th grade teacher, navigating the bumps and hurdles of my third year of teaching. I walk into my classroom every day wondering how my students will push and challenge my thinking, and I strive to support their engagement and learning through critical thinking and creativity. I recently completed my M.A. in education at Mills College, where I focused on the relationship between concepts and words in mathematics. I am passionate about creating a safe and equitable learning space for my diverse students, and differentiating through technology integration, innovation, and PBL.
