Welcome to my classroom!  My name is Katie Goetz and I teach Student Leadership, Student Mentorship, and Physical & Health Education.  I earned my bachelor's degree from Grand Valley State University in 2000 and my master's degree from the University of Phoenix.  I then went on to earn my Masters +30 at Marygrove College. 

I began my teaching career at Crossroads for Youth in 2000 and transferred to the high school in 2008.  I am a member of the Michigan Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (MAHPRED) where I have served on many boards and committees which included a four year cycle as the president.  I was awarded the Michigan (MAHPRED) High School Physical Education Teacher of the Year in 2009 and the midwest AAHPERD District High School Physical Education Teacher of the Year and the National AAHPWR Teacher of the year finalist in 2011.

I have four beautiful children; Madeline, Casey, Asa and Finnegan an awesome cat, Gracie Blue, and I love traveling and being with family!
