Writing Support & Enrichment
From a young age, I discovered worlds within words; parting the proverbial coats, I stumbled into a Narnia of my own making and couldn’t wait to invite others. Now, as an English/humanities teacher, writing coach, and admissions counselor, I enjoy equipping students to become effective consumers and producers of language and literature. I help them tell their stories, develop empathy, collaborate, form unlikely alliances with literary characters, grapple with kaleidoscopic perspectives, unpack and craft multi-shelved prose, and speak publicly and persuasively. Within the safe, invigorating, joyous space we create, they learn to not only inspire confidence in others, but also develop it in themselves. Through English, students delight in their expanding capacities as scholars, citizens, and leaders.
