Kate Geiselman teaches writing at a large community college in the Midwest, and intermittently blogs about her students. Although her sensibilities vacillate wildly between Mr.-Holland’s-Opus-like sentimentalism and bitter ironic detachment, she loves her job. Really. Her essays have appeared at Salon.com, The Rumpus, and McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and her first novel is in progress-ish. Read more of her work at kategeiselman.com, and follow her @Gee_Kate.
