Why Trust This Educator?

My name is Lillie, and I’ve been a public school English teacher since 2003, earning National Board Certification (a prestigious level of educator achievement) in 2013. I also serve as a mentor for developing ELA teachers in partnership with Harvard University.

I’ve taught English Language Arts to grades 7-12, plus adult ESL on 5 different continents, including such locations as Boston (where I currently teach middle school), Peru, and Ghana. See? I’ve had some practice in learning how to teach ELA, so you’ll be well taken care of as you continue to read — though I can’t promise to protect you from my abundant enthusiasm.
