Mrs. Katania Frett

Although Katania Frett began her professional teaching career in 2006 in South Fulton County, it was long before that when she quickly learned that teaching was her calling. When she was just a child herself, she started practicing being a teacher by playing school with her younger cousins. When she enrolled at Clark Atlanta University she made the decision to follow her heart and study early childhood education. She went on to earn her Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in teaching through the arts from Lesley University. Later, in 2017, she received her Gifted Endorsement. She has filled a variety of roles under her educator hat including being an Early Intervention teacher, teaching first grade, third grade ELA & Social Studies, sixth grade Language & Literature, and Talented & Gifted for K-5.

Ms. Frett believes that building positive relationships with her students and their families is the best way for students to maximize their learning. She believes that if the teacher and family work as a team to focus on students’ individual needs then the student will thrive.

When Ms. Frett is not teaching, you can find her around the various parks in Atlanta with her family going for walks and playing on the playground. Her favorite thing to do is to try new recipes to cook and bake. She also loves relaxing activities like reading, practicing yoga, binging a new series, and going to restaurants with friends. 

Mrs. Frett is excited to join the Virginia-Highland Elementary family.
