Teachers of TN: Katie Townsend

KatieTownsendwithlogo“I love to read. I love to write… I went into it thinking, ‘I love my content.’ And then I actually came in contact with students, and they completely changed my outlook. I don’t teach English; I teach people. I teach kids, and I just fell in love with those kids… They make me laugh every single day… They want someone in their life—in their corner—who knows what’s going on, and who believes in them… They want to learn. They’ve told me, ‘I want to improve my writing…I want to read better…’ People get sick of hearing me talk about my kids… But they make my life, you know? They’re my kids.”
