Katie MacLean is the Computer Science Teacher at Rocky Top Middle School. Ms. MacLean became a Grizzly in 2016, but this is her 16th year teaching. Previously, she had a ball teaching Language Arts and Social Studies to high school and middle school students. She even taught with the Peace Corps at a university in NW China! But her first love has always been technology. Heck, before Ms. MacLean became a teacher, she ran online bookstores; one of them was even in existence before Amazon.com!
Ms. MacLean got her Bachelor’s at Ohio University and her teaching license and Master’s from the University of Colorado at Denver in Curriculum Instruction.
When she is not teaching, Ms. MacLean is on the district’s Computer Science Curriculum & Iteration team as well as the sponsor of Rocky Top’s GSA (Gay/Straight Alliance).
Ms. MacLean loves to travel and enjoys everything outdoors (especially hiking and running) with her family and her amazing pooch, Twiggle.
One of the best things Ms. MacLean ever did was to become a teacher and she is overjoyed to spend another year with y’all!
