Hello! My name is Kathy Putkey and I am thrilled to be teaching second grade. This will be my 25th year in teaching and 15th year with Rocklin Academy. I feel passionate about providing students with experiences that meet their learning styles in an environment where they feel secure and supported in the process of achieving their personal best.
I am a graduate of San Jose State University where I received my Bachelors of Arts in Child Development and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with a CLAD emphasis. Recently, I received my credential in Administration and my Masters in Applied School Leadership.
My husband and I live in Roseville, and we are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters. When I am not at work, I enjoy all things kitchen related whether it be trying a new recipe or watching a cooking show about new techniques or recipes. 

I look forward to an exciting 2021-2022 school year. I am committed to working closely with my 2nd- grade team and our parents to ensure that all students have a successful school year.
