Katherine Deighton

Welcome 6th Grade! My name is Miss Deighton and I am a first year teacher here at Lucas!

Here is a little bit of information about me! I am from a small town called Glenwood, Iowa which is around a half an hour from Omaha, Nebraska. I have always wanted to be a teacher and chose to follow my passion for working with children. My background includes working in childcare settings and summer day camp, life guarding, volunteering, and various practicum experiences in Elementary schools within the ICCSD. This past spring, I recently graduated with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in reading. I student taught at Lucas and I am so excited to return with a classroom of my own!

My teaching philosophy incorporates a welcoming, well organized environment where all my students feel safe to learn. The foundation of this environment is built upon caring and respect, creating a space where all students feel accepted and empowered.
