Hello! My name is Katrina, and I have been a high school English teacher since 2012. However, I actually began my teaching career in 2010--4,000+ miles away in Slovakia! What I like most about teaching is that it is an incredibly human and humbling profession. Teaching continuously challenges me to reflect, rethink, learn, grow, and adapt, and I have shared many heartening moments with my students throughout the years.
Examining my teaching style, I have realized that I find freedom in structure--meaning that I like to plan out learning activities far in advance so that I can be present and connected when I am actually in the classroom with my students. Therefore, I would describe my teaching style as both logical/sequential and mindful/creative. In recent years, I have become especially interested in mindfulness in the classroom.
