Katie Linehan

Katie is from Dallas, Texas with family roots in the Midwest of the US. She has a bachelor’s degree in Science Education from The University of Texas at Dallas and an M.Ed in Science Curriculum and Instruction from UT Arlington.

After teaching middle school science for six years in the Dallas area, she made the leap to Sweden in November 2016, starting at IES Linköping. When asked by her husband if moving to Stockholm was on the table, she jumped to the chance to be in the capital city and thrilled to accept a science teaching position at SIS.

She hopes to bring her experience in helping middle school students become more organized and confident in their science abilities.
In her personal life, Katie plays touch rugby for Stockholm and travels around Europe with the team.
