Ms. Andrea has always been a teacher, but she has been teaching professionally for five years and currently hold a Clear Credential in California for Secondary English. She was previously licensed in Colorado, where she got started with her teaching career. She loves working with students to find their passions, and her favorite moments are those when students have been struggling and finally have that "ah-ha!" feeling. Her undergraduate degree is in English, Secondary Education from the University of Northern Colorado, and Andrea is working toward a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Like most English teachers, she describes herself as a voracious reader with broad literary (and non-literary) interests, and she hopes that soon young adults will be reading books she has written.
Our next session will be called "Keeping Kids Creative: How Creative Writing Practices Can Foster Academic Writing Skills" and will be offered on January 16.
