Kate Little graduated in December 2018 with a double major in English and Environmental Studies. She grew up in the sleepy beach town of Indianola, Washington, where she enjoys kayaking and hiking while home. Kate spent her summers interning at Humanities Washington, a Seattle-based nonprofit, where she edited Spark magazine and wrote articles on events around the state about civil rights, homelessness, philosophy, and politics. Over her time at Oberlin, Kate’s interests were focused on the relationship between places and the stories that we tell about them. Her research projects included creative writing on landscape, a capstone on Native American Literature, and a literary mapping of the American Southwest. She became interested in education through her collaboration with local teachers on Environmental Dashboard projects and tutoring of elementary school students through the DuBois Project. Kate is now working as a substitute teacher in Central Kitsap School District and is looking forward to applying her interests and experience to her work at Lady Doak College.
