Catherine Hendrix

English Language and Literature Teacher

As a daughter of diplomat parents and a traveler since my birth in Singapore, I’m fortunate enough to have learned about the interconnectedness of the world through travel. This is one of the reasons I am committed to the IB value of international-mindedness. Trained at the University of Maryland, College Park and Johns Hopkins University, I previously worked in international development and had the privilege of living in Cote d’Ivoire and working in many other countries in sub-Saharan Africa. My love of reading, learning, and exploration forms the foundation of my teaching practice. After having taught at KIPP College Prep and Cesar Chavez Schools in DC, I am very excited to be teaching English language and literature at DCI! Aside from an airplane ticket, there’s no better way than reading and writing to get to know the world and ourselves.
