Throughout her high school years, Katherine Anderson has successfully completed several of our OnlineHS courses with distinction. I’ve personally witnessed her excellent organizational skills, professional attitude, and caring disposition. She is an outstanding representative of her graduating class and that’s what makes her OnlineHS Student of the Month – May 2013.
Katherine is a senior at Cascade High School and is currently taking OnlineHS “Creative Writing II”. In this English Elective course, students write their own HERO’s STORY. This course guides students through the writing process using the classic storytelling structure to infuse their stories with direction, purpose, and structure – ultimately culminating in a multi-chapter short story. In this OnlineHS course, Katherine produced an eighteen-chapter horror story called “Kiss”. With the working title: “If I Kissed You”, it was published in Teen Ink online magazine and has garnered over ten thousand ratings – averaging five stars, as well as being the most discussed horror story on the entire site. She is currently in the process of editing the story and creating a proposal letter to send out to agencies in the hopes of being professionally published.
