As a child, Katherine developed a love for education thanks to her passionate and dedicated teachers. She became aware of the achievement gap while working as a tutor in high school. As an undergrad, Katherine majored in Integrated Language Arts Education and English, and completed a thesis on growth mindset and self-efficacy. She also spent a summer at the middle school program of Breakthrough New York, a non-profit dedicated to closing the achievement gap. Katherine is excited to learn from and work with Blue Engine this year.
