Bio: Carrie is a sixth-year English teacher at a rural New England high school. She holds a bachelor's degree in English Literature and a master's degree in education, and is certified to teach English to grades seven through twelve. Her areas of interest/expertise include literacy for struggling and reluctant readers, using technology in the classroom, and teaching Shakespeare. Carrie lives with her husband, a history teacher, and her crazy dog in the small community were they both teach.
Welcome! I'm Franchesca Warren. I taught high school for 13 years and currently work as a learning consultant and instructional coach based in Atlanta, Ga. I created this site in 2012 because I love not only collaborating with other teachers, but I wanted to build a network that shows that teachers are the experts in education. Please join our community of over 30 educators as we write about what's really going on in our classroom!
