Dr. Kathryn Reisdorfer starting teaching Humanities courses at Yavapai College in 1993. Periodically over the years, she had the opportunity to team-teach a variety of courses with other instructors outside of her discipline. She retired in 2009 and taught online classes part-time for several years after that.
Throughout her career at YC, Dr. Reisdorfer was active in teaching, committee work, writing, giving presentations to local, state, and national organizations and expanding her own knowledge through study and participation in national seminars. She was an example to her students of life-long learning and sharing in action.
She was most proud of her work to improve the learning experiences of students whether it was mentoring her own students, coordinating the College Honors Program and mentoring those students, chairing the General Education Committee to revise the Arizona General Education Curriculum which included the addition of a critical thinking requirement, or team teaching with other outstanding faculty members.
Dr. Reisdorfer was chosen to participate in three long-term National Endowment for the Humanities seminars. The results of those seminars always fed back into her teaching and other work at YC.
Her list of activities and accomplishments below are a testament to her work as an educator.
