Welcome to kindergarten!
My name is Katherine Aldridge and I am happy to have your child in my class this year!
I am so excited to begin my fifth year here at Forest Park! I am a native of Kannapolis and I'm honored to be teaching in Kannapolis City Schools. My husband and I have a rescued Dauchshund named Henry and an Australian Cattle Dog named Tolbert. We love being outdoors!
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and shopping.
I am also the biggest CAROLINA PANTHERS FAN! :)
I have always dreamed of being a teacher and I can thank my grandmother for encouraging me to pursue my dreams. She taught 3rd grade for 39 years and has always encouraged me to teach.

I believe that every child is capable of learning. I believe it is the teacher's job to guide and direct students. Every child is unique and every child has different ways of learning. Teachers must have an open mind when teaching and we must go above and beyond to reach the needs of our students. I believe an effective classroom teacher provides a learning environment that is flexible, where there is balance between academic needs and social needs.
