Hello everyone! My name is Katie Pena and I am 3rd grade teacher at Red Rock Elementary! I am so pleased to spend my fifteenth year as part of the wonderful Red Rock family. This is my second year at RRE and my sixth year with BISD. I have taught kinder, third, and fifth grade during my teaching career; I have also served as a resource/inclusion teacher and a science instructional coach in Austin ISD.
I was born in Florida, but grew up in El Paso, Texas. I recieved my bachelor of science degree at Texas Women's University, and currently working on my master's degree at Lamar University. I have been married for almost six years to a very nice man; we share a beautiful daughter and many, many fur babies! We have lived in Bastrop almost as long as we have been married and have no plans to leave any time soon!
