Mrs. Kate Schatz

This year marks my 24th year working in education. This is my seventh year teaching in Nebraska and specifically at Lakeview. My husband Greg, our two kids, Greyson and Romy, and I moved here in 2016 from Indiana. In south central Indiana, I taught high school English and journalism for 13 years and then became an instructional coach for my final three years there. 

We live in Columbus, NE and love being a part of the community! Romy attends Lakeview High School and Greyson attends Northeast Community College. Greg serves as the Director of Discipleship at 1C | The Sanctuary in Columbus. We love to travel, camp, and spend tons of time outside doing active things together as a family. We also have a Golden Retriever, Gus, who serves Lakeview and the community as a therapy dog. He loves his #lakeviewvikes!

I am extremely blessed to be able to combine two of my passions, learning and teaching, to do what I do. I strive to always find new ways to teach and am a strong proponent of integrating technology into the curriculum. I am constantly seeking new materials and opportunities to not only teach students, but also to empower them to have a lifelong desire to learn. 

I am so grateful to be at Lakeview High School this year and can't wait to work with the staff and students here to do great things!
