Karen Henderson teaches writing and honors classes at Helena College University of Montana. Having returned to school later in life and having been a “non-traditional” student, Henderson relates to students who choose non-traditional pathways to higher education and career goals.

A 2007 graduate of Montana State University (go Bobcats!), Henderson earned her BA in English Education with a minor in K-12 School Library Media and then went on to earn her MA in English, also from MSU, in 2009. Her areas of study while a grad student were pedagogy and memoir, and those continue to be her passions today.

Henderson has been at Helena College since January 2012; prior to that, she taught writing at MSU (as a grad student), Montana State University Billings (and City College), the Montana State Women’s Prison, and Passages Pre-Release Center in Billings.

Besides teaching and learning, Karen enjoys reading, writing, music (all types), kayaking, and a lovely glass of red wine.

  2. I am so thankful to be a part of this learning process with you. To learn is easier when your love for writing is contagious. You are wonderful patient and kind! I appreciated your hands on approach to putting my goals into words and teaching me about myself. Expression is a constant learning process it only took me 20 years to meet you and figure that out!
