Kathryn Robinson

Writer and Educator
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Raised on the Texas Gulf Coast, Kathryn Robinson was born into a long line of educators. Growing up among educators, academic success was always stressed. With an English teacher for a mother and a father who harped on the need for his children to communicate effectively, Kathryn pursued a career that fueled her passion for helping others through her work in the field of education.

Kathryn has worked in education for 20 years. She started as an elementary school teacher working in urban public schools in both Texas and Louisiana. In addition to her teaching experience, she has also worked as a school district reading coordinator and in education non-profit management, working as a partner with schools across the country to provide professional development and intervention resources in the areas of academics, socio-emotional learning, family engagement, and out-of-school time learning. Kathryn received her undergraduate degree in sociology from Spelman College and her master’s degree in language and literacy from Harvard Graduate School of Education. She lives in the greater Baton Rouge area with her young son.

As a fourth-generation educator, she has been inspired to focus her writing efforts on teachers and the education system in the hope of providing an authentic view of the teaching profession—the good and bad, successes and failures, opportunities and challenges. Her script, A Teacher's Life (aka Life Lessons), placed in the Second Round at the Austin Film Festival and has also been moved to the next round in the Macro Episodic Lab. With years of experience working in and alongside schools and teachers, who better to tell the story of teachers than one of their own?
