Hi everyone! My name is Caitlin Urban and this will be my first year teaching! I am so excited to learn and grow alongside all of you and your kiddos! I was born and raised in La Crosse, Wisconsin (Go PACKERS!) and if you were wondering…yes, I still have a little bit of that goofy midwestern accent! I moved to Pennsylvania when I was 14—about 45 min. North East of Philadelphia. I graduated from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania where I earned a degree in English with a concentration in writing. Four years ago, I decided to move down to Texas to pursue an amazing career managing a gymnastics and karate facility located right here in wonderful Fort Bend County. I became the director and head instructor of our pre-school gymnastics program as well as our summer sports camp, and it was there that I found my absolute love for teaching. So, I decided to enroll into the Texas Teachers of Tomorrow program where I received my EC-6, ESL, and ELA 4-8th certifications. In my free time I love to read by (or in) the pool, play sports, cook new recipes, travel, spend time with friends, facetime with family and play with my rambunctious 3-year-old Boston Terrier named Keva. I am so excited to be on this amazing adventure with you all and look forward to getting to know each and everyone of you!
