I’m Priscilla. I teach high school English in the Bronx. In the summer, I co-facilitate the New York City Writing Project Invitational Summer Institute. I love teaching, and I love my students, and I love talking about teaching and students. I’m sure my friends who are not teachers (and probably many who are) are sick of this, because nearly anything I talk about – books, writing, music, television, cooking, nail polish, graffiti, environmental issues, and so on – comes back around to my classroom, my students, my never-ending quest to be a better teacher. That’s what you’ll find chronicled here. Everywhere I go, everything I read, every thought I have that connects to, informs, or inspires my teaching, I’m writing about it here. Read. Better yet, comment. Better yet, share. Even better, write your own teacher stories. I’d love to read them.

I try to update with some semblance of regularity, but the best way to keep track of new posts is to follow the blog, or to follow me on Twitter @priscillawhocan. Thanks for reading!

  1. Priscilla, have you connected with Two Writing Teachers yet??? You need more feedback, comments and connections! Two Writing Teachers has lots of information and help, and teachers post there every Tuesday with a “Slice of Life”. This seems perfect for you! I hope your year ended well. I was concerned to see that your last post was in March. BTW in March the teachers “slice” (post a snippet of their day) every day in March. Everyone tries to get around to comment on other sites, and it is a lot of fun.
    I got here via searching online for another teacher, and began reading your site. It is very well written and from the heart.
    Try linking your next post to a Tuesday post at http://twowritingteachers.wordpress.com


    • Donna, thank you so much for this lovely & supportive comment. I’ve been trying to make writing come back into my life for months. I jumped back in today. You’re so right, I should absolutely come back into the SOL community – what an amazing group of writers there!
