Welcome to Kathy Chat! This page is for my online English language learners in China. I hope it will help us get to know each other better. Perhaps it will also give us ideas about what to talk about!

I was born in Pennsylvania, USA, and moved to Texas with my parents when I was 13.

I have taught English at┬ácolleges for many years and enjoy knowing and teaching college students. I received my Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Texas at Austin and my Master’s degree from The University of Houston – Clear Lake.

Before I became a college instructor, I worked for a software company and for NASA.

My interests are family history, travel, reading, and playing online games like World of Warcraft. I love animals. I am Vegetarian, and try to be Vegan as much as possible.

I love to travel, and I love learning about other countries and their cultures. I am sure I will learn as much from my students as they do from me!
