Biography

My name is Laura Katch and I will be teaching Transitions Algebra, Power Algebra, and co-teaching in Algebra and Geometry.  This is my first year at Scavo and I am so excited about this opportunity! I have completed all of my college education at the University of Northern Iowa, with my undergraduate degree being in Middle Level/Elementary Education and Instructional Strategist I.  I received my Masters in Special Education in 2012 and in July of 2016 I completed my Advanced Studies Certificate in Educational Leadership. My passion is in creating relationships with students and advocate for them so that they may learn to advocate for themselves.  I believe that every student needs a champion and I am honored to be that person for my students. I am married and we have one little boy, Jackson, who keeps us very busy! My husband and I have 5 sisters (combined) and we also have 9 nieces and nephews that entertains us and Jackson.

Hello, my name is Tammy.  I am married and have two boys; the youngest is a junior in high school and the oldest is a junior at the University of Iowa.  I am originally from Florida.  I have an insane Boston terrier named Tuffy.

I graduated from the University of South Florida in Tampa.  I have taught just about every math class available, ranging from general math to calculus.  I taught calculus and pre-calculus in the International Baccalaureate program for my last 13 years of teaching in Florida.   Seven years ago my husband and I decided to move to Iowa for the lovely winter weather here.  Since the move I have been teaching here at SCAVO.  There is never a dull moment.  Every day I learn something new.
