About me

Christine Ghattas

I am Christine B. Ghattas. Metro-Atlantan, former (and hopefully future) world traveler. Since you’re visiting my website, here are some things you might want to know.

 

I am an artist.

Throughout high school, college, and graduate school I kept art books filled with drawings of all kinds, and I still love to draw and paint every chance I get. Maybe as a result of drawing through so many classes, to this day one of my favorite ways to make art is while listening to a recorded lecture or TED Talk.

I am a writer.

I write often, mostly for my own edification. When I lived abroad I kept a blog that I updated semi-regularly. It can be found here: https://cbgabroad.wordpress.com/.

I am a teacher. 

I started along the path that led to my becoming a teacher when I was an undergraduate at Kennesaw State University. I worked first as a tutor in the KSU Writing Center, where I also held an administrative position for several years, and I eventually earned my Master’s in Professional Writing with a concentration in Rhetoric and Composition. I began teaching classes at KSU in 2008, and after teaching English as a foreign language in Costa Rica and Chile in 2011 and 2012, I returned to KSU in 2013. I currently hold a position as a part-time professor of English at KSU, where I teach first-year composition classes.

I am a wife and mother.

My husband and I got married in 2015, and we have one child. Our daughter, Sugarplum (which is not her real name, of course), is a giggling, toddling, fast-moving little girl.

I love to hike. 

… and by “hike” I mostly mean “walk along wooded trails.” There is something about being in quiet, natural space that I find simultaneously calming and invigorating.

    • Ah, I would be happy to, but that particular painting was for a specific person, so I no longer have it. I would be happy to do a different painting for you, though… I will email you right now 🙂
