Katie Brinton

Hello!  My name is Katie Brinton!


I am an art teacher at Southwest Elementary and South Lexington, and I teach grades kindergarten through 5th grade.  I am also a STEAM teacher for 1st and 2nd grade students at all elementary schools in our district.  STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math, although my main focus during our class time is science.  I have my bachelor's degree in Art Education with a minor in Art History through Western Kentucky University.  I taught middle school art in Kentucky for four years.  After moving to North Carolina, I taught high school art for a year before making Lexington City Schools my home.
