Katherine’s personal teaching pedagogy is rooted in Culturally Responsive teaching and learning; she believes in a student-centered approach to teaching in which the students’ unique cultural strengths are identified and nurtured to promote student achievement and a sense of well-being about the student’s cultural place in the world. In order to achieve this, Katherine believes that all students should engage in hands-on authentic learning experiences that provide opportunities for expression, creativity, and reflection.
Her favorite part about working and teaching at RMCAD is providing support for future art teachers so that they can be their most successful selves! Katherine is a proud member of the strong and empathetic art education department. When not teaching, she enjoys time with her family, including her husband, Graham; son, George; and their cat, Friday. She also enjoys cooking, gardening, biking, hiking and skiing.
