About Me

Welcome to Gold Rush Elementary! My name is Catherine Graham and I will be your child’s 2nd Grade Teacher. My goal as your child’s teacher is to foster a love of learning while valuing individuality and striving to meet the needs of each student. I am committed to ensuring a quality of instruction that is both developmentally appropriate and challenging for each student. 

This will be my 17th year in Douglas County. I graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science and an emphasis in Exercise Physiology. I then went on to complete my Masters Degree through the University of Colorado (Denver) in Curriculum and Instruction and obtain my teaching license. 
I have been married to my husband Kelly for 19 years. We have three beautiful daughters McKenna, Kendall and Delaney. McKenna is 14 years old and Kendall is 12 years old. McKenna attends Legend High School and Kendall attends Cimarron Middle School. Delaney is 6 years old and attends 1st Grade at Gold Rush. We also have Dakota a Gold Retriever Puppy! Our family enjoys outdoors activities such as camping, hiking, swimming and skiing. We are HUGE Bronco fans! In my spare time I enjoy running and one of my favorite hobbies is to scrapbook.
