I’m Kaitlin. I’m a 20-something female, born and raised in southeastern W.V. I graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in English from Shepherd University in 2008. I lived in Washington, D.C. for a while, getting my M.S. in Applied Linguistics at Georgetown University. I am now a 2010 Teach for America Corps member in Memphis, TN, teaching high school English.

My life goal is to be a strong matriarch, living in a little cabin in the woods with a full veggie garden and a bunch of chickens running around. I strive toward wisdom in everyday life, even if that involves making a lot of mistakes along the way.

I also want to develop curriculum and teaching materials for English as a Second Language or Language Arts. I also think I’d be perfectly happy with being in a classroom for the rest of my life.

I enjoy literature, coffee, good music, close friends, camping, Transcendentalism, Wesleyan philosophy, and apple cider.

I miss Lost.
