About Me

My name is Mrs. Kathy Bjorkquist. I have taught at Horrall, now LEAD Elementary, since 2000. This is my eighteenth 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.
