ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Kat Pacetti is currently pursuing her master in history at UCCS.
She will complete her Masters in May 2024.
She is also a Social Studies teacher at Nikola Tesla Education Opportunity School.
Her passion for local history stems from her students.
They often feel disconnected from the history that is typically taught in the classroom because it is not their history.
She loves researching the history that is relevant to her students so that they can feel connected to their past.
She hopes to prove history is more than just a bunch of boring dates and names and to inspire a love for the past in future generations.
