COUNTRYSIDE VILLAGE TEAM
Katie was working her dream job as a 2nd-grade teacher. Then, one of her sweet students shared some family challenges with her. Suddenly, Katie’s thoughts began to shift to the struggles her students were facing after school. Through an incredible chain of events, Katie found herself launching a new Path Project in Countryside Village! She is able to empower children and families during our after-school programs to ensure they are successful in the classroom.
