Congratulations to Kathryn Mayfield for being named the 2025 LHCSD Teacher of the Year. “Katie” began her career in LHCSD in 2010 as an Special Day Class teacher at Ladera Palma. Katie later served one year as an Academic Coach and two years as a Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) to support the Multi-Tiered System of Success (MTSS) model. Katie decided to return to the classroom and is now a beloved Kindergarten teacher at Arbolita. In all her positions, Katie has generously shared her creativity, talent and passion for teaching with her colleagues. When students leave Mrs. Mayfield’s classroom, they are well-prepared, loved and ready for first grade.
We are very grateful Katie chose LHCSD as her place to make a difference. This award is well-deserved and we are very excited to have Mrs. Katie Mayfield representing La Habra City School District as our 2025 Teacher of the Year.
