I travel a lot. I teach a lot. And I end up in school a lot. It’s not on purpose; it’s just where I tend to find myself. I like learning, and I like being around other people who are learning.

As far as teaching goes, I’ve taught English (ESOL, College Composition, and Creative Writing), Computer Basics, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and pretty much whatever landed in front of me that my students needed.

Along the way, I’ve also picked up (and forgotten) Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Uyghur, and a lot of literary and pedagogical theory.

Currently, I’m working on teaching myself the skills I need to transition into a career in software development. It’s fun, and I’ll try to share my favorite resources as I go.

You can follow me on Twitter at @KristenMThayer, see what I’ve been working on lately on GitHub, or connect with me on LinkedIn.
