Hi, my name is Catrina Ho and the 2021-22 school year is my eleventh year of teaching. I am very excited for my third year at Westlake. I will be teaching and coordinating for the ELD program. This year I am also excited to be teaching a creative writing class for the 6th grade electives wheel.
I received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, M.A. in curriculum and instruction from University of Denver, and earned my endorsement in Gifted Education from the University of Northern Colorado. I also have an endorsement for teaching linguistically diverse learners as well as language arts 7-12.
Prior to Westlake, I began my career as a 4th grade teacher for 5 years for Aurora Public Schools and then taught fifth grade language arts and social studies at Mountain View Elementary. I am a Colorado native and proud Adams 12 graduate. I also speak 3 languages: English, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish and am learning sign language. I am looking forward to a great year!
