Hello! My name is Katie Kriley and I am originally from Smith Center, Kansas. I graduated in May of 2017 from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education. I have an energetic Spanish Water Dog named, Luna. She loves swimming, running, and playing fetch. I love attempting craft projects that I’ve found on Pinterest. I also really love gardening. My favorite plants are succulents so I make many terrariums and succulent gardens! I’m very excited for this year to begin and can’t wait to meet all my students!

Mrs. Shamburg received her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Fort Hays State University.  She has taught elementary grade levels for many years here at Bennington.  She lives with her husband, Kevin and has raised three sons.  She has five grandchildren that she enjoys spending time with.
