Katherine Decker is from Wellesley, Massachusetts, and just graduated from Denison University in Ohio with a bachelor's degree in psychology and German. She is so excited to be a US teaching assistant because she loves working in schools with children. Her career goal is to be a school psychologist, and she hope to gain valuable experience this year! Katherine has been learning German for 10 years and feels so lucky to be immersed in the language (which she has never been able to do thus far!) She loves to be outside, going on walks or runs, and she also loves to cross-country ski. She enjoys exploring new cuisines and foods, especially coffees from different countries. Katherine hopes to enjoy all of those things in Austria and Europe this year!
