Katherine Morris

Hello! My name is Katherine Morris. I am a Kindergarten teacher at Anniston Avenue Elementary this year! This is my 8th year teaching, but my first year in Mississippi. I recently moved to Gulfport from the small town of Heavener, Oklahoma.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Northeastern State University, a Master’s degree in School Counseling from East Central University, and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Human Capital Development and Instructional Technology and Design from University of Southern Mississippi.

I absolutely love play-based education and find every opportunity I can to learn more about how to effectively implement it in my classroom while still adhering to state standards and effectively meeting student learning outcomes. Compassion and patience are central to my teaching philosophy. I can't wait to meet you and your child!
