My name is Katie Gardner and I am an Arizona native. After graduating from Westwood High School in Mesa, I attended Arizona State University--where I was named "2010 Secondary Student Teacher of the Year". I began my career in San Tan Valley and soon moved out here with my husband and three children. I have taught history and economics prior to coming to Florence High School. I am currently the FHS Master Teacher and am loving getting to work with teachers within roles of professional development. I feel very blessed to be a part of this Gopher family and strive to do what I can to add to the amazing tradition here by also sponsoring NHS. I have been proud to be a Warrior, a Sun Devil, and now a Gopher! Go FHS!
