Mrs. O’Dell

Mrs. Katie O’Dell  is our Kinderbird teacher. She is a Butler grad and has spent the last few years teaching in primary and special education classrooms at the IPS Butler Lab and Montessori schools. She is passionate about progressive, child-centered education, project work, social-emotional learning, educational neuroscience, and social justice within the classroom.

Katie lives in Nora with her husband, baby boy Aulden (who was born 2.5 months premature this past November!), and two rescue pit bulls.

Outside of school, she loves to spend time outdoors with friends and family–whether that be through walks, hikes, bonfires, house projects, or gardening. Katie also loves doing puzzles, reading books, and crafty things like making candles, cross stitching, refinishing furniture, and painting.
