About the authors

Katy Ridnouer teaches with the intention of giving students the tools they need to articulate their unique voices. She does this by creating strategies that help students lift the veils that block efficient learning so that they may use their strengths, cope with their weaknesses, and become successful learners. She has taught in a variety of settings, including public middle and high schools; a private school for students with learning difficulties; a GED program for adult women on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota; a tutoring center specializing in treating students with learning difficulties; a private school in Dublin, Ireland; and at Central Piedmont Community College, her current position.
