Kathryn Borud

Assistant Professor
School of Education

Miss Katie Borud joined Maranatha’s School of Education in the Fall of 2023 to teach Elementary Education courses. Before joining the MBU faculty, she taught for six years as an elementary teacher in grades one and four and brings practical experience to share with future elementary teachers. Miss Borud recognizes that many elementary teachers are unprepared or negative about teaching math and science, and she hopes to help equip Maranatha graduates with the skills and attitudes to change that trend.

Borud shares, “God clearly opened this door for an opportunity I wasn’t expecting or actively seeking. I’m confident that God has called me to Maranatha, and I’m eager to see the ways that God will use me in this new position. I am excited to join the faculty and become involved in mentoring and training new teachers.”

Dr. Thomas Graham, Dean of the School of Education, states, “Ms. Borud is a well-qualified educational professional with years of real-world elementary classroom experience. We look forward to her joining our faculty and training our Elementary Education students in both the theoretical and practical applications necessary to become highly successful teachers.”
