Mrs. Stauss Sophomore English Homework


Education:

MA English, Middlebury College's Bread Loaf School of English, 2015; Teacher Certification, St. Michael's College, 2010; BA English, Trinity College, Hartford CT 1980


Education is my second - and much loved - career. Prior to that, I wrote and produced primarily documentary films for more than thirty years. My work, written in my maiden name - Kate Youngdahl, has appeared on PBS, History, National Geographic, Showtime, Discovery and many more. Besides teaching, my toughest job was my first: five years producing sports at ESPN in the early 1980's.


I am a passionate reader, writer and collector of stories in all forms.

I live on a farm in Granville where my husband Roger and I raise cows and chickens. Both of my sons, Jack and Bob, graduated from Harwood.
