Kathy earned her B.A. (Magna Cum Laude) and her M.S. degrees in mathematics at Baylor in, respectively, 1975 and 1984. She joined the Baylor math faculty in 1985 as a lecturer and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2000. Each semester, Kathy teaches four classes to more than 200 students. "Kathy and our other full-time lecturers do the bulk of the undergraduate teaching in our department.", says Littlejohn, "Without their commitment, dedication, and excellence in the classroom, we would not have been able to develop our graduate program or build on our reputation in research. Our lecturers form a vitally important part of our department's overall success".

Congratulations, Kathy! We are all very proud of you and so fortunate to have you in our department!
