Teacher Bio

  • Katie Sawyer My name is Katie Sawyer, and I am proud to be a Parkway Early Childhood Panda!!  I am from St. Louis, received a Bachelor's Degree in Education from the University of Dayton, and my Masters in Education from Missouri Baptist University.  I am certified to teach Early Childhood, Early Childhood Special Education, and Elementary Education. This will be my eighth year at Parkway Early Childhood after four years at Kirkwood Early Childhood Center in Early Childhood Special Education. 

    I have a true passion for working with our youngest learners!!  Helping each child progress in all areas of their development—academic, social, language, and motor—is a challenge that I am honored to accept daily.  I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment. 

    Personally, I have been married for 22 glorious years and have three fantastic children who are 21,18, and 15 years old and attend Parkway Schools and Mizzou.  We love to watch our kids' sports—tennis, volleyball, basketball, baseball, and swim! I also enjoy reading, cooking, music, relaxing at the beach, and spending time with friends and family.

    I look forward to working together with you as partners in your child’s growth and development!!
