Katie Delbridge

Associate Director, ELA

Katie has always been passionate about teaching and crafting worthwhile educational materials for students and teachers. In her role, Katie works with members of the ELA team, as well as writers and editors, to ensure clients receive high-quality materials that meet their needs on a timely basis. 

Prior to venturing into the educational publishing world, Katie was an elementary school teacher for twelve years. In that time, she challenged herself to differentiate instruction to help meet the needs of her students. In doing so, Katie served on various district-wide literacy committees and trainings to help promote and encourage areas such as writing individualized instruction. In 2013, she began her accomplished tenure at a major publisher, where she was recognized for her work in designing, writing, and editing a variety of instructional materials for students and teachers.

Notable highlights of Katie’s career include the following: 

  • Writing, editing, and reviewing content for the award-winning websites Raz-Kids, Raz-Plus, Writing A–Z, Vocabulary A–Z, and ReadyTest A–Z
  • Conceptualizing and managing a significant portion of the development of Learning A–Z’s Literacy Curriculum Map
  • Working with psychometricians to critically analyze existing comprehension quizzes and subsequently developing assessment guidelines that resulted in improved reliability of assessment data for teachers 
  • Designing a comprehensive literacy-focused summer school program for Grades 1–5
  • Crafting and leading workshops to train teachers and administrators on best practices for differentiating math instruction 
  • Developing writing prompts for Grades K–5 teachers to assess students’ writing growth throughout the school year based on the Six Traits of Writing 

Katie graduated with honors from the University of Arizona with a BA in Elementary Education. She has completed multiple courses at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, including 21st-Century Teaching and Learning, How to Learn Math for Teachers, and Mathematical Mindsets. She is certified in Structured English Immersion Endorsement, K–12 and Early Childhood Endorsement by the Arizona Department of Education.

Katie loves being outdoors and can be found most weekends hiking, bike riding, or just playing tag with her two young children. She looks forward to taking up backpacking again when her youngsters are old enough to hike longer distances!
