As a high school student, Katherine (Sullivan) Washut enjoyed many of WISDOM’s courses. This experience of the Socratic method motivated Katherine to further pursue its use in the study of the Great Books at Thomas Aquinas College. A year after her college graduation, Katherine was drawn back to reading and discussing, this time as a tutor for WISDOM! She is delighted to lead discussions in the various courses she teaches. Katherine’s goal in the classroom is to help her students develop skills in articulation, critical thinking, active listening, excellent reading comprehension, and courteous conversation. Her humble hope is to facilitate the beginnings of wonder in her students as they gain a deeper understanding of the class material.

Katherine was joyfully married in the summer of 2022. She now lives in Northern Wyoming in the United States. Katherine loves tacos, mountains, bluegrass music, and her new husband.
