About Me

My name is Mrs. Kathy Bjorkquist. I have taught at Horrall, now LEAD Elementary, since 2000. This is my seventeenth year of educating students. I have had the pleasure of teaching third, fourth, and fifth grade during my time at LEAD. My goal as an educator is to build students’ self-confidence,  foster a love for learning, and help students feel comfortable taking risks in their learning.  I am trilingual. I speak English, Portuguese, and Spanish. I love art and teaching through art. I believe every child can be successful and I try to provide a safe environment for all children to learn.

Upcoming Events

5th grade will be going to the Tech Museum in San Jose on February 2. We will be working on a Chemistry Lab and Watching a film about the Louis and Clark expedition. 4th grade will be going to Mission San Juan Bautista on March 21st to gain a better understanding of mission life. Please remember if you would like to be a chaperon on one of our field trips you must have your fingerprinting filed with the district. Forms are available in the office.
