Katy Washburne

English Language Specialist

I have been an English language and GED instructor for over 22 years.  I fell in love with teaching while working overseas in Turkey. I spent ten years living between Turkey and the United States.  This gave me a great appreciation for the struggles of newcomers in a new land. I spent most of my career working at colleges and universities in California, Washington, Georgia and Arizona, helping English language learners and underperforming native English speakers bridge the gap between high school and college.

I returned home to Arizona in 2015 to be near family.  I taught English language courses at ASU and for the adult education program at Gilbert Public Schools.  I really enjoyed working for the Gilbert District and decided to make it my home. I have taught at Mesquite Jr. High, Playa del Rey Elementary, and Islands Elementary.  I am a high energy person and love walking, hiking, fitness classes and traveling with my husband. Family dinners and movies are favorites too.
