Katie Orgill

4th Grade

Back to School Night:

Hi! My name is Katie Orgill; a.k.a. Ms. O

I was born and raised in northern Nevada. I attended Brigham Young University-Idaho and earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 2015. I am currently working on earning my Master's Degree through Southern Utah University.

I worked at Disney World in 2012. I have a love for all things Disney. Mickey is my favorite character. I learned a lot during my time as a Cast Member about hard work, magical moments and having fun. I want to bring that love of laughter and sense of accomplishment into my classroom.

I love to camp, travel, crafts, and read. I have been to almost every state in the USA as well as Canada, Mexico, Germany, Italy, Slovakia, Switzerland and Austria. Europe's history and beauty absolutely amaze me.

This is my 6th year teaching at Hawthorn Academy. I spent the previous 5 years in 3rd grade at our South Jordan campus.

I love to have fun while learning! One of my goals as a teacher is to get the students to see just how capable they are of accomplishing hard tasks.

I cannot wait to get to know you and your students better! This will be a great year!
