Miss Kaitlin Lugo


My name is Kaitlin Lugo.  This is my fifth year at Quail Run Elementary, and my forth year in second grade.  I believe in a designing a personalized learning and using engaging techniques to meet the needs of all my students.  I value the power of building relationships and creating innovative learning paths to positively impact my students' lives.  

I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Kansas.  During my time at KU, I also had the amazing experience of studying abroad in Italy.  The desire to explore and experience the world has always been in my heart.  Working in an Italian elementary school motivated me to earn a license endorsement in English as a Second Language (PK-12). I am currently pursuing a masters degree in Educational Administration at Emporia State University.  
I also work with high school and college students as the Head Cheer Coach for Lawrence High School and Assistant Cheer Coach for the University of Kansas. I am a very proud Jayhawk and so thankful to a part of the Lawrence community that shares in such rich tradition and vibrant spirit.  
Working with children has always been my passion.  I worked (around the corner) at Stepping Stones Daycare in Preschool II for two years.  My time in the center helped cultivate my love for teaching and provided valuable experience and on-the-job training.  In my free time, I have been and still am a mentor in the Lawrence Big Brothers Big Sisters program.  My "Little Sister" a Quail Run Alum :) have been together for two years and our relationship continues to grow stronger.  I believe that the power of community support can positively impact children's lives.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.  In the winter, you may find me snowboarding and crafting up some projects, but most often you will find me watching movies or playing outside with my adorable dog, Koda.  :) 
I cant wait to embark on a new year adventure with your children and you! ROCK CHALK!!
