Katie Weaver, Support Teacher & Art Specialist

Katie Weaver is very excited to be joining our Kindergarten classroom as the Support Teacher. Katie was born and raised in Orlando, Florida, and has exhibited a deep passion for the arts for as long as she can remember. At an early age, she displayed her imaginative and artistic tendencies by using modeling clay to sculpt animals; and as time went on, she progressed in her knowledge and understanding of the arts, becoming interested in different varieties of art forms, including ceramics, drawing, painting, and photography. In her studies, Katie loved learning about the different styles artists used to create their masterpieces and how they accomplished these styles.

Unsurprisingly, Katie continued to pursue her love for art, and earned her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Central Florida in 2010. During her time there, she studied different types of art and artists, and gained knowledge of different artistic styles, as well as the specific rules that apply to the creation of various art forms. Katie felt inspired to pass on her knowledge of the arts, and depth of technique in the arts, to a new generation so she turned her attention to the teaching of art, and went on to earn her Master’s Degree at the University of Central Florida in Art Education in 2012. Here she learned how to work closely with students to instill in them a deep appreciation and understanding for the arts.

For three years, Katie worked in Clearwater, Florida where she taught Visual Art to elementary students grade K-5. She has recently moved to Austin and is very thrilled to have the opportunity to continue providing students with an appreciation for the arts. Katie is recently engaged and is excited to be getting married in the Austin area.

Check out our Grade 2 trailblazers most recent collaborative project!

While exploring the IB transdiciplinary theme of "How We Organize Ourselves", students are inquiring into how people use measurement systems as organizational tools. During this engineering project, students were tasked with designing, measuring, building and improving a dream home for one of their stuffed animals.

Take a look at these trailblazers demonstrating the IB Learner Profile Attributes of "Inquirer, Thinker, and Communicator" as they built their dream homes!

Read all about our IST Grade 1 Student Scientists!

Our Grade 1 inquirers have been discovering the properties of gas using the IB key concepts as an exploration guide. Asking questions like "What is it like?" (form), "How does it change?" (change), and "What does it do?" (function).

Unlike liquid and solid matter, gas is quite tricky to find and investigate. The students' first task was to make gas to collect.
Students created gas by swirling mixtures together to form a bubbly reaction. A balloon was placed on top of the bottle to collect the gas. Students explored the properties of gas by adding varied amounts of mixtures together to increase the size of their balloons.

This incredible inquiry required students to utilize all of our IB approaches to learning (Research, Self-management, Communication,Thinking, and Social Skills).

Take a look at our students BUBBLING with excitement during this activity!
