Mrs. Katie Denney

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year and GJHS! 

This year I'm starting my 14th year in public education. This is my 8th year as a Professional School Counselor...all 8 of those years have been spent right here serving the students of Gainesville Junior High.  I also have 6 years of teaching experience as a High School Agriculture Science teacher. 

I grew up just a little ways down the road in Whitesboro, TX.  I am a Red Raider through and through!  I graduated from Texas Tech in 2004 with a BS in Interdisciplinary Agriculture. I even spent a short period of time in Texas' only desert where I recieved a MS in Animal Science from Sul Ross State University in 2006.  I received my Standard School Counselor Certification in May 2014 after completing a year-long alternative certification program through Region X Education Service Center.  

In April 2015 I was blessed to marry the love of my life!  I love being a step-mom and my little family of 5 have a blast together!  We're National Park enthusiasts, love camping, hiking, swimming, going to the movies, playing outside, fishing, having cookouts and roasting marshmallows on our firepit!
