Katie Portelli

Head Teacher, Hudson's off Henry

Katie was born and raised here in Brooklyn and lives in Sunset Park with her husband and two children, ages 4 and 6. She holds a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and a BA in Sociology from Manhattanville College. For as long as she can remember Katie has been drawn to working with children of all ages. Her love for teaching came about quite naturally after her own children were born and she developed and ran a licensed family daycare program in her home. In addition to that she has worked as an Americorps volunteer, a manager of a group home for at-risk youth in San Francisco, an assistant in a New York City public school, and as a nanny for families in New York City and Westchester. Katie believes in allowing children to learn through play and exploration and brings her passion for healthy living, cultural sensitivity, and environmental awareness into the classroom.
