Mrs. Kaitlin Roland
Welcome to 3rd grade! My name is Kaitlin Roland, and I am so excited to be teaching 3rd grade at Columbia! I grew up in Madison and attended the University of North Alabama where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education. I was a graduate of the Honors Program at UNA and graduated with an Honors in English. I am currently working towards my National Board Certification.
I began teaching in 2013 and taught for 6 years in Huntsville City Schools, spending one year teaching 2nd grade and five years teaching 3rd grade. This is my 3rd year at Columbia. Though the past two years I have taught 4th grade at Columbia, 3rd grade has always been near and dear to my heart. I am so excited to have the opportunity to return to teaching 3rd grade! I will be teaching all subjects. I can't wait to not only share my love of learning with the students, but to also challenge each child to grow as a student and to develop a love for learning that the children will carry with them throughout their lives.
I love traveling with my husband and spending time with my family, friends, and our three cats Bentley, Calypso, and Zoey. I can’t wait to begin this wonderful journey with you and your child! I know this year will be the best one yet!
