Ms. (Katie) Wakana is the lead teacher of our East Coast Division. She is excited to represent all the Dunkin Donuts, Maryland crab, and four season lovers on the East Coast. She lives in Washington, DC, but was born in Chicago and has lived all over (Detroit, Houston, Maine, Boston, New Hampshire—where will she go next?!). She lives with her husband and two kids (3yo and 18mo) in a row house that can feel like a wild safari similar to her experience when she lived in Namibia working on Black Rhino conservation. On a typical day you can find her at the playground, cheering on the Chicago Cubs, or getting lost on an outdoor adventure. She spends her afternoons virtually tutoring Kindergarten-sixth graders. She is excited to join the Global Division in it’s inaugural year and can’t wait to build this community with all of you!
