My name is Katie Barsaleau. I was born in Canada and grew up in England in a lovely town just outside of London.

I moved to North Carolina in 1995 to attend UNCW. Over time, Wilmington has become home to me. I married a charming WPD Homicide Detective and had two sons. Jake just graduated from Ashley and Ben is now a sophomore at AHS.

I love my job. I have yet to wake up in the morning and not want to go to work. I hope that each one of my students will one day know that feeling.

I also have chickens.......and sometimes I talk about them too much.
