School Spotlight

Mrs. Katie Nygaard
Middle School Math

Middle School Math Mrs. Katie Nygaard is in her ninth year teaching Middle School Math for the Paton Churdan School District. Our Staff Member of the Week has many favorites including her favorite color- purple, food- tacos, and sport- volleyball. Of course her favorite subject is math and her favorite animal is a dog. If she could go anywhere on vacation she would go to Hawaii and someone she admires is her mom. When asking the students at Paton Churdan why Mrs. Nygaard deserves to be the Staff Member of the Week they said that she works hard to make sure they understand math and she pushes them to be better students. They also love all of the fun things she organizes for the middle school students. Mrs. Nygaard thinks she is special because she has a great family and a great place to work and we think she is a special asset to our community. Thank you Mrs. Nygaard for all you do at Paton Churdan.
