Mrs. Katie Morris
Welcome Clear Spring Roadrunners!!! My name is Mrs. Morris and I am excited to be your student's first grade teacher at this wonderful school. This is my fourth year of teaching, first grade, and my fourth year at Clear Spring.
I grew up in Lewisville, Texas, which is about 290 miles north of San Antonio, in the Dallas area. After my senior year of high school, I moved to Abilene, Texas, to further my college education. I attended Abilene Christian University where I recieved my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and my master's degree in Teaching and Learning. This is also where I met my wonderful husband, Brian Morris. We got married in July 2016. Brian is from San Antonio, which is what brought me here, and I have loved living here for the four years.
In my spare time, I love being with my husband, family, and friends. I enjoy reading, shopping, going to movies, and watching sports. Go Spurs Go! I also danced growing up and like to take a class or two here and there.
Parents, I am so thrilled and excited about this school year with your child! We are going to have a fantastic year full of great learning! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
