About Me

Hi!  My name is Kim Poteet.

I have been teaching adults to read and write better for over thirty years.  I have taught at a community college, a university, a county jail, and even a maximum security prison.

My undergraduate degree is in English from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  I have an M.Ed. in Adult Education from Auburn University and an M.A. in English Composition & Rhetoric from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

I also have a background in theater (I was a professional stagehand for ten years).  The most memorable job was as sound technician for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater for almost three years – I got to travel the world with a wondrous dance company.

I recently retired from teaching and am now immersed in both taking and creating online classes.  So much fun!  Check out my classes on Skillshare
