Katie Arwood

Happy Hands Teacher

Since 2020

Katie Arwood graduated from Lewis University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Paraprofessional Endorsement through the State of Illinois.  Her focus for the past four years has been working with children on the autism spectrum and she has worked as a nanny for children with special needs as well.  As a former Happy Hands student herself, Ms. Arwood is excited to join the Happy Hands staff this year.  When not at work, you can find  Katie playing with her niece and nephew.

“My favorite part about working with children is watching them grow throughout the year and accomplish milestones all while having fun!”
