Mrs. Wilcoxon

My name is Mrs. Katie Wilcoxon and I am thrilled to be the 5th and 6th grade Reading teacher at Peralta Trail Elementary School! I have always been passionate about reading and am so excited to help foster a love of reading in the students at PTES. I have 17 years of experience in education and received my Bachelor's degree in 2002 from Truman State University in Missouri. My Master's degree was earned in 2005 from Colorado Technical University. My family and I moved to Arizona in July of 2018 from Arlington Heights, Illinois-a suburb of Chicago. I have two children: my daughter, Lena, is entering sixth grade and my son, Rand, is entering second grade. My husband, children and I can typically be found hiking or camping on the weekends and exploring the mountains and deserts of this great state! We are currently training to hike the Grand Canyon in June 2020.
