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!
