Hello! My name is Katie Aldridge and I am excited to be a part of the Smith Elementary Family. I wrapped up my fifteenth year of teaching, just last year (2018-2019), and I am really enjoying learning and growing in my new role as an Elementary School Counselor. What I love most about elementary is the genuine curiosity students have in their learning and the world around them, as well as the opportunity for early intervention support that can have a lifetime positive impact on a child.
I grew up in a small town in North-East Texas named Bonham. I am married to my wonderful husband, John. We have two of the most handsome and energetic boys. Austin is our oldest son, and he is 11. Austin is a sports fanatic and enjoys videos games. Aaron is our youngest son, and he is 9. Aaron loves the outdoors and sports, especially tackle football! We also have a one dog, Riley. He is a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix. He loves to go on walks, cuddle, and eat. I am also a huge Dallas Cowboys Fan!
