Biography

My name is Katie Hembree aka Miss Katie. I was born in Chattanooga, TN, raised in Savannah, GA, and have lived in Madison, AL for the past 9 years. I went to and graduated from Sparkman High School. During my sophomore, junior, and senior years at Sparkman, I took a childcare class as my elective. In the class, we learned how to be a teacher. Two days out of the week we had children from the age of 2-4 come for a half day preschool and we were the teachers. We would pick out the lessons for the week and implement them in the class. We would also volunteer at an elementary school two days a week and help the teachers out with anything they needed. This was the moment I knew for a fact that I was going to be a teacher. After I graduated high school, I went to Calhoun Community College and got my associates degree in general studies. During my time there, I took three child care classes and a child psychology class. I definitely learned a lot from those classes. I am now in my second semester at Athens State University. I am working on getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have had a lot of experience working with children, and I can honestly say I love every single minute of it. I started out babysitting when I was 13 years old. When I was a junior in high school, I began working as paid childcare at my church on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. I have been working as a full-time daycare teacher for a year, and I have been working at CLK for 4 months. CLK is home to me, and I am so very blessed to be working here.

Why CLK?

I chose to work at CLK because The Lord led me here and showed me this is where he wants me to work. I love working at CLK because it feels like home; no, it IS home. My co-workers are amazing, the children are a joy to be around, and I have the best boss in the world. CLK is not just a place to work; CLK is my family. My favorite day of the week is Monday because I know that I am going back to work.

Favorite CLK Memory

My favorite CLK Memory, as of now, is when I came in one morning, after a few weeks of working at CLK, and all the kids were calling my name. It was a very heartwarming moment.

Favorite Curriculum To Teach

My favorite curriculum to teach would have to be the alphabet because, working with two year olds, the alphabet is where I see the most growth. We go over the letter and the sound it makes, and we also sing letter songs that help them remember the sound each letter makes. I love being able to say a letter and hear them say the sound it makes.
