Katie White

Katie White spends her days working to transform the educational experience for teachers and students. She has been an integral part of her own school system's multi-year journey through educational reform and has assisted systems worldwide in their work toward approaches that honor learning relationships.

She has a passion for helping educators develop a personalized understanding of the connections between curriculum, assessment, and instruction and creative approaches for reaching and teaching every single learner in every single classroom.

In living out this passion, she not only works within her system, but serves as an educational consultant and author for Solution Tree. Her sense of humor and responsive approach to adult learning makes her a sought-after professional support for systems and schools. In addition, she is a co-moderator of the well-known #ATAssessment Twitter chat and she is the president-elect of the Canadian Assessment for Learning Network.

Katie has a bachelor of education and master of education in curriculum studies from the University of Saskatchewan. She has served the role of classroom teacher (K-12), online high school teacher, instructional coach, vice principal, and central office leader.

She has authored the following books: Softening the Edges: Assessment Practices that Honor K-12 Teachers and Learners and Unlocked: Assessment as the Key to Unlocking Everyday Creativity in the Classroom, and Student Self-Assessment: Data Notebooks, Portfolios and Other tools to Advance Learning. Her fourth book will be released in April 2022.
