Hello! My name is Katherine Lohens and I will be teaching art for the 2019-2020 school year. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2016 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education. I am endorsed in science, social science, and language arts. I am also currently working towards getting my English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement from Aurora University. I've taught 5th grade in Chicago for the past three years and I'm extremely excited to start my new role as an art teacher here at Melzer. I am thrilled for this upcoming school year and cannot wait to watch all of my students express their creativity in our class. Art has always been a passion and love of mine and I hope to instill a love for art in all of my students.
