Professional Learning Leader / 

Curriculum Designer

As an Earth Science teacher of over a decade of experience working with students from grades 7-12, Katharine’s goal is to get her students outside making observations about their environment. She wants her students to see how the landscapes around them form and how scientific issues play out in their local communities. Around her school’s campus you can find her leading nature walks, digging up granite chunks and soil samples for a lab, or uncovering colonial artifacts with her students. Katharine enjoys developing new curriculum and she teaches courses in earth and space sciences, engineering, and local history and environmental studies.


In 2016 Katharine was selected as an educator collaborator for Science Friday, a nationally syndicated science news show on public radio.  As part of their first cohort of educators, Katharine contributed online content and curriculum to their growing educational outreach initiative.


Katharine earned her bachelor's degree at Mount Holyoke College and holds a ScM in Geological Sciences from Brown University.
