Mrs. Katie Novak

Hello and Welcome to Fourth Grade!

My name is Katie Novak and I am excited to be spending the next year learning and growing with you!

I received my Associates Degree from College of Dupage in 2005, my Bachelors in Education from Lewis University in 2008 and a Masters in Education from St. Francis in 2014. I have had the privilege of being a part of the IHK family since 2008. I started my experience here in third grade as a student teacher. I was then hired on as a paraprofessional working with Fourth grade. After that I was blessed to have been asked to fulfill many maternity leaves at many different grade levels which ended with me being hired on full time in Fourth grade. I have been teaching and enjoying fourth grade for the past eight years. Each year brings new students, new ideas, new challenges and new ways to grow as an educator and a person.

My family and I live in Homer Glen. During my free time, I enjoy scrapbooking, organzing and playing games. My husband, David, is a Plumber and loves home renovation. We have two amazing children, Nevin (4) and Olivia (2.) Together we love hanging by the pool, going to the park and spending time with our very large extended family.
