Design Rubric


My name is Katie and I am a second year Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Elliott School of Communication. This is my first semester teaching my own section of this class, but I’ve been a TA for Amy the last two semesters. I have also taught Comm 111: Public Speaking the last three semesters. While I love teaching public speaking, I’m even more excited to teach this class because I love design and the way it can display information in a creative way.

Born and raised in Kansas, attending Wichita State was a natural choice for me. I took this class as an undergrad with Amy and I can honestly say it is the class that made me decide to switch my major from business to communication. I graduated in 2017 with a degree in integrated marketing communication and now I am in my final semester of my master’s program.

Graduating means finding a big girl job. At the moment I have no idea what that will be, but my hope is to find a job that I can be passionate about and flex my creative muscle. Maybe that means a marketing department of a nonprofit or a brand manager at an ad agency. Check back with me in May.

When I’m not at school or working on my thesis, I love hanging out with my fiancé, Matt, and my dog, Zelda. They’re both huge goofballs and always have me laughing. I do my best to stay active (though some days are harder than others) by doing yoga and boxing. I picked up succulents as a hobby last spring and I’m obsessed with them now. It’s a relaxing thing for me to do and supposedly plants bring you more happiness, so win-win.
