I'm Katherine York

West Texas Yearbook Representative

My Philosophy

"Do right. Do your best. Be honest. Treat others as you want to be treated and have fun!"

Before I started working with Walsworth, I taught art and journalism for eight years in the greater Houston area. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy seeing students be proud of their hard work. Journalism is not just a class but something much bigger. To see students not only produce a printed book of their school's history, but then choose to continue it after high school and on to careers is so rewarding.

I consider myself blessed to now be a part of so many adviser and student successes. Being part of a much bigger family is a blessing.

Never forget - what you do matters!

To our yearbook advisers and staffs, from all of Team Texas - we're so proud of everything you've accomplished during this difficult year!

(Katherine) is excellent at dealing with all aspects of the job. She does a great job dealing with parents, students and staff. She is very good at dealing with problems that you encounter, seeking strategies to improve so those situations do not occur again and implementing the plan so the yearbook is an enjoyable experience for the students working to produce the book. She builds rapport with students like no one I've ever seen. She is able to get more out of students than they believe they can do.
