Welcome to Second Grade!!! My name is Kathryn Louks. I have been a teacher at Havens for 14 years. I am a graduate of Saginaw Valley College and I completed my extra class work at Michigan State University. I began my teaching career as a fourth grade teacher in the St. Charles School District. I went home to raise my three daughters, but continued to substitute when it was convenient and I was needed. Our daughters graduated from Swan Valley Schools, so as they became involved in school, I began to substitute for Swan Valley Schools. I missed being involved with young learners as my daughters grew, and was able to return to teaching in the Swan Valley District. I have felt it an honor and priviledge to work with a fantastic staff of educators!!
I enjoy reading, watching movies, and playing tennis with my husband. I love cooking and spending time with family and friends. I really love the adventure of traveling to new places, seeing new things, and relating my travels to the history of the place.
My husband David is a research chemist at Dow Chemical. My daughter Carrie has a degree in finance, but is currently a stay at home mom with her husband Brian and my two grandchildren, Tyler and Lauren, in Ohio. We presently have 2 daughters in Chicago. Cheryl is a mechanical engineer for an energy firm, and Christa recently graduated from DuPaul University with a masters in Digital Media and is working for Fuzzy Math at the present. Swan Valley Schools gave our daughters great support in education and character development. I try my best to help my students be the “Best they can be” now and in the future!!!
I believe teachers can only be effective with parental support!! Please feel free to call, e-mail, or join us in the classroom! Also, feel free to make comments or give suggestions that you think will help your child in their emotional and educational needs.
