Mrs. Katie Owens

I am so excited to be your fourth grade teacher for the 2022-2023 school year! It's going to be a great year full of learning, new adventures, laughter, and growth. About Me: I am from Clayton, North Carolina. I attended East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Over the past six years, I have taught both fourth and fifth grade at Polenta. I currently live in Wendell with my husband, our dog (Remi) and cat (Oliver). A few of my favorite things include coffee, Target, Amazon, organizing, Chick-Fil-A, reading and crafting.
