Katie Clum, MEd, MA Theology

Katie Clum joined The Seattle School in 2023 as an Instructional Designer where she supports faculty in their course design and implementation.

As a former elementary teacher, a career educator, and a lifelong learner, Katie is deeply committed to the art and science of teaching and learning. She seeks to help teachers and students leverage technology in powerful ways in service of innovative instruction and increased access to enable students from all walks of life to grow and thrive through their learning experiences, no matter the medium. Katie is a certified K-12 teacher in Washington State. She also holds a Master of Arts in Theology from Whitworth University and a Master of Education in Digital Education Leadership from Seattle Pacific University.

Born and raised in the PNW, Katie has lived in Seattle since 2006 and can’t imagine calling anywhere else home, despite the fact that she’s her truest and happiest self with a bit of a suntan. Outside of work, she is a musician and enjoys working on recording projects with her band, OK Carol. Katie loves cooking and hosting friends for dinner parties and she also loves reading, hiking, and camping with her family, pretending to know how to garden, and taking long walks with her dog and a mug of coffee. Katie shares life with her husband, Luke, a product designer and avid outdoorsman, and their two daughters, Nelly and Lana: they are all pretty big fans of their gentle giant Great Pyrenees, Moses (you can call him Mo). Katie is continually trying to live meaningfully in the present, be curious, and grow in compassion and love for all humans.
