Katie Bonomo has found her home at Western Reserve Academy and every day she works to make sure our students feel the same. A member of the Reserve family since she graduated from Depauw, Bonomo won the esteemed J. Ward and Marian Keener Prize for faculty in her first year at the school.
Her drive and passion to work with students is evident not only in the mathematics classroom — where she teaches geometry, precalculus, algebra and statistics — but also on the athletic field and in the dorm. She takes pride in seeing students grow, learn from their mistakes and challenge themselves.
She says her aspirations as an educator at Reserve are to create mathematical thinkers, inspire creativity and make students always feel at home. From lending a compassionate ear to developing creative and hands-on learning, her approach adds up to excellence.
