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 a M.Ed. in Adult Education from Auburn University and an M.A. in English Composition & Rhetoric from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, where I am currently teaching.

I also have a background in theater (I was a professional stagehand for ten years) so I know the power of entertainment and presentation.  I am teaching myself to draw and like using my own cartoon drawings to illustrate my work, which is always an adventure – the results are so rarely what I initially expect.

Welcome to my site and thank you for visiting.  You can email me at heyteach101@gmail.com.
