Kate Sommerville serves as a Professional Development Specialist at the Institute. Kate spent 17 years teaching 4th and 5th grade in the Elmbrook School District, with the last four years team-teaching in a personalized learning environment.

She has presented at local, state, and national conferences, and has a true passion for keeping the student at the center of learning through the use of technology, inquiry based instruction, and student autonomy. She looks forward to using her own personal experiences to network and support teachers, districts, and students on their own personalized learning journey.
