Mrs. Kate DeBoard

Welcome to 5th grade!  My name is Kate DeBoard and I have served Cartersville Elementary as both a classroom teacher and a special education teacher in fourth and fifth grades. I grew up in a small town in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. I graduated with a BS in Elementary Education/Psychology from Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY.  After graduation, I moved to Cartersville, where I began my teaching career, in 1998, right here at CES! I also hold a Master's degree in Special Education- Inclusive Education from Kennesaw State University.  

I am married to Brian, a Bartow County native, and together we have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren. We enjoy life in the country with a variety of small farm animals as well as our 3 dogs.  My hobbies include reading, exercising, hiking and camping.  

Instructional Content can be assessed via Schoology or by contacting me personally.  We communicate with both students and parents (text messages, emails and phone calls) through Teacher Messaging.  Your contact information in Infinite Campus MUST be accurate for you to receive my messages.  Please contact the front office if you need to update any information. 

I'm looking forward to a fantastic year!
