• Meet Your School Psychologist!

    Dr. Gorham and her dog Knuckles  

    Welcome Apollo Bulldogs! My name is Dr. Katie Gorham and I am the full-time school psychologist here at Apollo School. 

    I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and English at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL and my Doctorate in Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This is my fifth year working at Apollo School and I have enjoyed every moment getting to know our wonderful students and families.  

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding your child's learning, behavior, or mental health needs!
