Mrs. Katie Owens

I am so excited to be your fourth grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year! This will be my fourth year teaching at Polenta Elementary. 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. I have taught fifth grade at Polenta for the last three years. I currently live in Wendell with my husband, our dog (Remi) and cat (Oliver). I love traveling and being with friends and family. A few of my favorite things include coffee, Target, Amazon, organizing, Chick-Fil-A, mystery books, podcasts, and crafting.  





(Website Coming Soon) 



REMOTE LEARNING:  During remote learning, we will primarily use Google Classroom (for assigning individual assignments throughout the week) and Google Meets (for live meetings with students). Additional resources will be available on our classroom website. Class Dojo will be the primary way I relay information. Please be sure to check Class Dojo daily.
