Welcome to English 2 Pre-AP and English 2!My name is Katie Harnish and I have my Master's in Education from the University of Oklahoma that I completed in December of 2013.

I have also taught every other grade from 6-12 in some form or fashion! I am so excited to be teaching at Boswell and look forward to spending many more years here.The picture above is a photo of me and my husband Drew, an Engineer at Lockheed Martin, with our baby boy Everett who was born in April of 2016.
