Catherine has been teaching English at the secondary level for seven years. Determined to make learning rigorous and relevant, Catherine creates curriculum that draws from diverse texts and prompts her students to read closely, think critically, dispute their own ideas, and write for any purpose that they may encounter. She loves teaching for the same reason that she loves learning; both are continuous, demanding, and dynamic. Catherine holds a BA in English Teaching from Montana State University. She is currently a degree candidate in the ALM program in Extension Studies, Creative Writing and Literature at Harvard University. Find her and her work at CatherineDorian.com.
