Hello students! This is Katie.
I have now returned to my home state of New York after five years of teaching English writing to university students in South Korea. I have traveled to over 20 countries, and I am always interested in learning more about cultures different from my own, so I would love to learn about Chinese life and society from you.
When I am not teaching or traveling, I like to go on long runs with my little dog Mandou, curl up with a good book, or write my own fiction.
My passion is literature and creative writing. I have an MFA in Fiction from Purdue University and I have taught writing for eight years. If you would like to not only read and analyze novels on an advanced level, but also write your own stories by studying the techniques of great writers, you will find yourself at home in one of my classes.
