Hi! My name is Kate Haskett and I am a new teacher at Marcy Open this year! However, I am not new to teaching, with a 26 year career under my belt! I am teaching 7th and 8th graders in the class: Socratic Seminar. This class is a combination of English and Social Studies. I am guiding students to increase their higher thinking/questioning and problem-solving skills, helping them express their opinions clearly, after researching current world events.
        In my free time, I love reading, going to music/drama concerts, watching movies, downhill skiing, swimming, but mostly, spending time with my 2 children. My daughter, Jordan, graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in May 2016. My son, Noah, is a senior in college at the University of Wisconsin. I am originally from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and my extended family lives all over Wisconsin.
I am thrilled to be working and living in the Minneapolis area and at Marcy School! I look forward to meeting students and parents as the school year progresses.
