Stephen F. Austin State University

2nd Grade


Kathryn Darden

Welcome to 2nd grade! I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Stephen F. Austin State University. My teaching career began in 2007, as a second grade teacher with the Garland Independent School District at Abbett Elementary. I taught in Garland for a year and then moved back to Nacogdoches in 2008 where I began teaching second grade at the SFA Charter School. I am excited about working with you and your child this year! I know it is going to be a great year!

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Stephen F. Austin State University May 2011. Following graduation, I accepted my first teaching position at Woden Independent School District where I was blessed to teach and touch the lives of Pre-K students for four years. I also served as the second grade storytelling coach and the junior high cheerleading sponsor and coach at Woden I.S.D. I am currently the new and eager second grade teacher at the Charter School. When I am not in my classroom or researching new learning strategies, I am spending quality time with my husband Jake, our dog and friends fishing, hunting and enjoying our new home. My goal in education is to foster young minds and to teach children how to think rather than what to think. I look forward to a new adventure this year with my second grade friends and my amazing faculty and staff teammates. Cheers to a great year!
