Since Katie Pennington has a long background in education administration, she enjoys sharing tips on how to get kids excited about school. Although she’s always taught at a high school level, her experiences across school districts and her day-to-day interactions with her own kids have given her a much wider perspective. She is able to plan fun activities, help her kids juggle their many interests, and find a way to maintain a balance of it all.


Katie’s family values stem from her own childhood. She was fortunate enough to be raised by two loving parents who have always supported her in everything she wanted to try. Now that Katie has children of her own, her parents continue to play very active roles in her life; they go above and beyond in their grandparent duties and essentially act as a second set of parents for their grandchildren.
