• Hi Families!

      My name is Katie Bortner. I graduated from Cedarville University in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, and in 2015, I graduated from Salisbury University with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This is my 9th year of teaching, and it is my 2nd year at CES. I previously taught for 7 years in Dorchester County Public Schools. I moved to Queen Anne's County from Dorchester County in 2015 when my husband and I got married. We have a 12 year old beagle, who is our first baby. Our human baby is expected to arrive in late October 2020. Some of my favorite things are coffee, the beach, ALDI, Target, and leopard/cheetah print. 

      This year, we will begin with virtual learning through Schoology. Here is our 1st grade virtual learning schedule. When we are able to return to school, I will update this page with our in school schedule.



    If you ever need to contact me, please call the school or e-mail me at katherine.bortner@qacps.org, and I will get back to you quickly. 

    I highly recommend the site ABCya, if you are looking for something fun for your kids to do that is also educational. This has many games for math and reading. 

    I am looking forward to a great year!

    -Mrs. Bortner
