Mrs. Katie Bass

Hello! My name is Katie Bass,I am an 8th grade math and ELA teacher. I look forward to getting to know everyone this school year! 

 

I am so excited to begin my 1st year and a North Johnston Jaguar. This will be my 11th year teaching. I am orignially from New Jersey, but came down to North Carolina in 2007 to become a pirate. GO PIRATES! At ECU I met my husband Josh who is a biotech engineer in the Triangle area. Together we have three beautiful children Landon (5), Mary-Kate (4), and Olivia (1s). We have 2 four legged babies as well, Honey Bear (9) and Doc (1). 

 

I love to read young adult books, so if you have any great suggestions please send them my way! I get as excited as the students do when the scholastic book fair comes into the library twice a year! I love going to the beach; however, it is not as relaxing these days with the kids. In the summer and on weekends we love to go on fun adventures (some of our favorites include: Hillridge farms, Boyette farms, Marbles, any and all pools/ splash pads, Pullen Park, and so many more). 

 I look forward to a great school year!
