Katy Goodman is a writer, educator, and naturalist. When she isn’t busy rhetorically analyzing a speech and working with students, she can be found reading, sitting on horses, or playing video games; sometimes she may try to do all of those things at the same time. She holds an M.A. in Rhetoric and Composition from Auburn University and has been published on various sites including Kotaku, Cinema Blend, Gameranx, and Match.com. Her research focuses on literacy/relevance in education, procedural rhetoric in gaming, and the effects of media/language on the integrity of individuality. In her spare time, Katy also enjoys volunteer work in literacy/writing initiatives, women’s rights, and environmentalism. She ardently believes that proper English instruction, as well as a focus in the arts, are vital parts of education that can build empathy and voices for all involved; English is at its best when it can be interdisciplinary and applicable to all.
Process of Thoughts is her portfolio and space to share work and creations, from freelance writing and best practices in education to thoughts, passion projects, and adventures.
