I'd be curious how many times Katherine has taught these classes before. If it is her first time through the courses, new preps are the equivalent of slave labor. You just grit your teeth and muscle through the year/semester, learn from it, and decrease your prep time the second time you teach it. Also, what is her passion and comfort level behind each of her subjects. I taught a new class last semester on creativity in business that did not seem like work, even though I put in a ton of hours to prepare for it.... the passion was there, both for the topic and the students. Seems like there are a lot of factors in Katherine's situation that might guide the answer in different directions.
