About The Teacher

August 23. 2014
My name is Katrina Latham.  I have been teaching for 26 years. I am about to 
begin my eighth year of teaching ENRICH! on the Hillcrest campus. 

My family and I  moved from Central Oregon to Santa Rosa several years ago.  
We will always have great memories of Oregon but are delighted to
be living in the amazing Sonoma County area.  I am thrilled to be teaching in
the Gravenstein School District again this year!  I absolutely fell 
in love with Sebastopol from the first time we drove through it when getting
to know the area.  

Previous to teaching in the Gravenstein district, I taught 13 years
in Oregon and previous to that I taught 5 years
in Albany which is in the Willamette Valley region of Oregon. I am Nationally 
Board Certified and have a Master's
degree in Technology In Education.  The amazing part for me is that the more I
learn the more I want to continue learning.  

Teaching is the best job in the world because I get to be immersed in an
environment that supports a quest for knowledge and a love of learning.  I am
a life-long learner and I foster that trait in my students!

My husband and I have four kids.  Karissa is 
21 Jesse is 22, Cody is 24, and Jordan is 25.  We have a dog named 
Peter and a cat named Jasper.  As a family we like to sail, fish, camp, hike, 
play games,ride motorcycles, watch occasional movies, use computer 
technology and, of course, read!

I look forward to working with you all as we team up for a fabulous school 
year!
