As a young, modern teacher who has just graduated from graduate school, I am coming to the teaching profession with lots of bold, new, exciting activities to make literature fun! Whether it is memorizing a Shakespeare sonnet, understanding Hamlet, or analyzing numerous poems by John Keats, my students will learn the skills necessary to navigate through difficult literature as well as bring those skills into their future for the rest of their lives. We would tackle important life skills such as thesis statements, essays, seminars, and presentations. As a growing teacher myself, I would also continuously grow, improve, reflect, and create numerous opportunities for student voice and feedback so that we can grow together.

About Katherine K.

I am a native Russian speaker, first generation American, who learned English and Russian simultaneously growing up. I have been extremely interested in the English language ever since I first started speaking it, and knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was five years old. As a result, I graduated from SUNY Geneseo with my Bachelor's of Arts in English Literature, with a double minor in Philosophy and Linguistics. After this, I went straight to graduate school at UC Berkeley, graduating in May 2020 with a Master's degree in Secondary Education, with a concentration in English. I just started my first English teaching job in Denison, TX, teaching English II and AP Literature.

Other than teaching, I also play four instruments! I have been playing piano all of my life, then I picked up the clarinet, saxophone, and ukulele and have been playing all four ever since. I have been a part of music for forever; I have played in eleven pit orchestras, with musicals ranging from Spamalot to Fiddler on the Roof, and have performed in numerous piano recitals.

Along with music, I have been a competitive swimmer for 15 years; I began swimming at age five, and swam at varsity level since seventh grade. Although I stopped swimming my freshman year of college, I continue swimming recreationally. My other hobbies include: reading (I love mystery!), playing my instruments, cooking, and going on hikes. I love exploring new places!
