Mrs. Katy Mitchell

Hello 5th graders and their fabulous families of Johnson Elementary School!  I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful school.  My name is Katy Mitchell.   Teaching is my DREAM job!  This will be my 12th year teaching in Texas public school classroom.  I have also taught in the private sector.  I will be teaching 5th grade Science and Math; two of my favorite subjects!

Here is a little about myself.  I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University.  I am a very blessed woman to be married to my best friend, David Mitchell,  for over 2 decades.  We live in McKinney with our two fabulous sons.  Josh  is attending Collin College.  Caleb is a junior at McKinney North High School.  Both boys keep us active and busy.  We have 2 adorable cats, and one very active dog.  Life is full of joy!  If you like to know more about me and my favorites, click here.

I am elated to be apart the amazing Johnson Elementary School, and the fabulous 5th Grade Team.  Johnson Elementary is a very SPECIAL place.  The evidence of respect, kindness, joy, and love is apparent to all.  Our students are role models that display integrity that the world truly needs.  So grateful to be a part of this magical and unique school.  This year, you will see tremendous growth and change in your sweet child. It will be a fun-filled, hard-working year.  

My philosophy of education is building relationships, which is the foundation of the successful learning.  We will cultivate a school family.  We will build each other up, encouraging one another.  It is my goal to teach the whole child.  We will grow not only academically, but also socially and emotionally.  We will work to define our goals, make a plan, encourage each other along the path, and reach our goals.  We will learn to endure and persevere through challenges.  We will discuss the choices that make us shine bright, as well as avoiding the choices that make us dim and dull.

I am very excited to be partnering with you, as we teach your child.  I value you as an active partner in your child’s education.  Together, we will help your child to stretch and grow.  My door is always open.  Please feel free to reach me with questions, comments and concerns.  During the school day, it may be hard to reach me while I am teaching my fantastic students.  However, I will return emails, phone calls, and notes after our school day.  My phone number is (469)219-2340 Ext. 31228.  My email is   

It will be an amazing year!!!

Sincerely and with warmest regards,

Katy Mitchell
