Katie Avila

Hi! I’m Mrs. Avila! I have been a teacher for thirteen years, nine of which have been here at Reilly. I have spent the last eight years as a 5th grade teacher and am looking forward to the exciting opportunity to work with 3rd graders this year! I am originally from West Hartford, Connecticut and moved to Austin, TX shortly after graduating college. Although I thought it would only be for a short while, I have grown roots here and don’t ever plan on leaving! I love Austin and have recruited most of my family to move here as well. I live with my husband, who is also a teacher, our five year old son, another son arriving in the next couple of days, and our dog Rita. I love teaching because I really enjoy getting to know my students, helping them to be successful, and watching their growth and progress over the year.
