Katie Engstrom was born and raised in Kingsburg California. She moved to Idaho Falls in January 2018 when her husband accepted an engineering position at a software development company. In her spare time, she enjoys singing, running and hiking with her husband and springer spaniel, Luna.
She received her AA in Vocal Jazz Performance from South Western Community college in Creston Iowa, and received her Bachelors in Music Education from California State University Fresno. She has had the opportunity to spend the last five years in Europe working at international schools. She was a Subject Teacher in Copenhagen Denmark and then worked at an International Preschool when she lived in Lausanne Switzerland.
Katie is looking forward to sharing her creativity and enthusiasm with both her Kindergarten and Music students. She hopes to create a fun and encouraging environment for the students to learn and grow. She is excited for the school year and feels honored to be a part of the Alturas International Academy Team!
