• Hello, my name is Kathleen Packingham and I am a STARS Special Education teacher.  This is my fourth year teaching in the Anoka-Hennepin District and my second year at Dayton.  I am very excited to be here!   


    I moved to this area four years ago after my husband was transferred to Elk River.   I came from a very small town in northern Minnesota where there was only one stop sign, a gas station, a pizza place and a small K-12 school!  This is a big change for me but my family and I are enjoying getting to explore our new community.  When I am not teaching I like to spend time with my husband, our two children and our Golden Retriever.  We like to go camping and we have been exploring different state parks this summer.  I also like to ride horses and I am a certified equestrian coach for Special Olympics. 


    I am excited to be part of your child’s education!  I look forward to working together to help our students achieve to their fullest potential.
