Catherine Kalob joined the NEC faculty in 1998 as an Instructor of Social Work. Since that time, Catherine has worked to develop the minor into a program which prepares students both academically and professionally for a career in the field of Social Work. Catherine has added the Field Practicum course to include a 144 hour internship in a Social Work agency. Catherine is also in the process of developing a student chapter of NASW on campus.
In 2005, Catherine assisted Dennis Kalob in the development of the NEC New Orleans Program. This service learning program took on new meaning as the first group of NEC students spent the 2006 Spring Semester assisting in the rebuilding of New Orleans. Since 2006, NEC students have learned and served in semester, J-Term or extended Spring Break experiences. In New Orleans, Catherine teaches a course called "New Orleans Music and All That Jazz" and also coordinates volunteer and social work experiences for the students.
In 2010, Catherine became a Professional Tutor in the Pathways-Tutoring Center of the Danforth Library. She very much enjoys having the time to assist students individually in the quiet, relaxed setting of the Tutoring Center.
Catherine lives in Henniker with her husband, Dennis, and their children. She enjoys volunteering at the Henniker Community School and in various social service agencies in New Hampshire. As a native of New Orleans, Catherine enjoys going home to visit family, working in the on-going rebuilding efforts and volunteering at the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park.
