This week we recognize SanLee Middle School 8th Grade Social Studies Teacher Katie White as our Teacher of the Week. Ms. White is in her 2nd year at SanLee and is a proud graduate of NC State, where she studied Middle Grades Education with an emphasis on Language Arts and Social Studies.
Ms. White takes a student-led and inquiry-based approach to teaching. In doing so, she can serve as a facilitator, so that her students can be empowered to assume responsibility for their own learning. Ms. White is recognized among her peers and students for her enthusiasm, dedication and flexibility. She is proud of developing lasting and meaningful relationships with her students, and draws a great deal of inspiration from them.
A Sanford native and Lee County High graduate, Ms. White enjoys reading, travel, family time and the outdoors. She is a fan of Wolfpack sports and the Carolina Hurricanes, and spends her spare time with her husband and their two dogs.
