My name is Kate Bufton, and the 2020-2021 School Year will be my 4th year teaching at Mountain View, and I couldn't be more excited! Prior to teaching First Grade, I taught a special called "World Cultures & Russian Language." I also currently serve in the United States Air Force Reserve as an Instructor Pilot.
I am an Ohio native, and moved to Parker five years ago. I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors of the Arts in Public Relations and Communications with a minor in Russian Language, Literature and History from American University in Washington, D.C. And, then I went on to earn my Masters of the Arts in International Diplomacy with an emphasis in International Conflict Management at Norwich University in Vermont.
When not at school, I love spending time with my family (my daughters are alumna of Mountain View!), hiking, backpacking, traveling and exploring.
I am so excited to work with First Graders and their families this year! I love school and hope to share my passion for inquiry and exploration with you! I can be reached any time at firstname.lastname@example.org
