Interviewer: How did you become a part of CSA?
Katie: I worked for a major client of CSA years ago. I really enjoyed the experience and working with the CSA team. When this position opened, I went for it!
Interviewer: What is the best part of your job?
Katie: Working with CSA has really opened my eyes to the variety of materials that are created for teachers and students. It has also enabled me to work with writers and editors all over the world.
Interviewer: What do you wish people knew about your work at CSA?
Katie: CSA offers such a wide range of services, from traditional writing and editing, to production/design, alignment, and custom curriculum development for schools and other institutions.
Interviewer: What do you wish schools focused on more in terms of education and why?
Katie: I wish schools incorporated writing more into their curriculum. As a teacher, and mom, I have seen the benefits of regular writing in children from kindergarten on up. Writing encourages strong understanding and communication skills. It is easy to incorporate and the benefits are endless!
Interviewer: What are three interesting facts about you?
Katie: I love the outdoors! I have backpacked the Grand Canyon from the North Rim to the South Rim—it was amazing! I can’t wait to introduce my kids to backpacking! Also, before venturing into educational publishing, I taught elementary school for 12 years. My teaching experience is something I will always hold close to my heart. I remain in contact with quite a few of my former students. I love to hear about where their paths have taken them. Finally, once upon a time, I wanted to be a custom auto painter. My parents veered me in the direction of education when it came time to attend college. I am glad I went that route, but I still appreciate a nicely painted classic car!
