480.279.8736My name is Katherine Gangawere! I graduated from NIU with a degree in elementary education. I have been working within the Higley District for 4 years now as a first-grade teacher and absolutely love it! Before this, I taught in Glendale as a second-grade teacher. I did my student teaching in multiple different grade levels, so I have had fun seeing different age groups in action, but first grade has been my favorite so far!In my free time I enjoy traveling, playing games, doing puzzles, baking, and spending time with my husband and our two adorable dogs.
