About Us

KATSacademics (Katherine Anne Theresa Steen) provides materials to help teachers save time with easy-to-use materials on a variety of topics and subjects at minimal cost.  We are starting by providing literacy materials for picture books, short chapter books, and novels.  Soon literature packets for novels will be available.

Katherine Steen is a 37 year veteran teacher.  She has taught high school and middle school English/Language Arts (Wayland, NY and Evanston, WY), Curriculum and Instruction classes at the University of Wyoming (Laramie, WY), 4th and 5th grade and kindergarten (Henderson and Las Vegas, NV), and was a Literacy Specialist and K-5 Science instructor (Henderson and Las Vegas, NV).

Literature packets were originally created for use in Kathy’s middle school and high school classes to accommodate different reading levels and interests. 

Extension menus were created while teaching elementary school to reinforce story elements and comprehension, review, and/or extend reading before students took Accelerated Reader quizzes.
