Hello, my name is Katy Guinn and this is my first year as a full-time staff at North Star Elementary! I grew up here in Colorado in the Arvada area. I then lived in the Seattle area in Washington state where I attended Pacific Lutheran University and obtained a Bachelor's in Economics and Environmental Science. After PLU I went on to work for after school programs in middle schools in Tacoma, WA. I spent 6 years working at the Boys & Girls Club before I decided it was time to move back to Colorado and get my teaching degree! I am so happy to be back in the Denver area, near my family, and working at North Star! I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking and baking, and adventuring outside! This past year I have challenged myself to learn a new hobby - mountain biking! Check in with me about my lastest adventure any time :) Please feel free to reach out with any celebrations or questions in regards to our students!
