About Katie

Since I was young, I have loved writing and literature. This turned into a bachelor's degree and a career as a high school English teacher. I spent three years in the classroom teaching all grade levels in English and writing classes (particularly freshmen) before taking a break to stay home with my kids. My youngest is now in school and I have re-entered the work force as a Media Center supervisor in a local high school. There I get to help students (particularly ESL) with all of their subjects, but I especially love the writing and literature.

During my years of teaching, I spent a lot of time introducing high school freshmen to research paper writing. I am proficient in all areas of the writing process and experienced with composing works cited pages and building complete research. I really enjoy seeing a student succeed, getting to play a role in that success and learning through each of my students. I love working with students and making a connection.

I am happy to help you improve your skill with writing, literature, and other creative venues. I am also available for editing and proofreading for English classes, or other subjects.


Feel free to contact me for more information and so we can get something set up to begin our journey together.
