Teachers of TN: Katherine Watkins

“The students I have taught go on to pursue various careers, most of which have nothing to do with the study of literature, but many of them stay in touch and routinely check in to let me know what a difference my course made in their development. There are plenty of times when teaching pushes me to the brink of frustration, but all it takes is one message or note from a student to restore my confidence that there is nothing more important or worthwhile I could be doing.”
