About Me

Hi! My name is Bri. I majored in English at Arizona State University, and I have worked for the past few years teaching after school and summer programs in film and screenwriting to teenagers. I love my little dogs and I love to read and watch movies. I am really passionate about making reading and writing more fun for middle and high schoolers.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

I am really looking forward to experiencing the classroom hands-on and getting to learn from a mentor teacher, as well as all of the other students in my cohort. It’s going to be great to have so much support and other people to bounce ideas off of!

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

The teacher who helped me the most actually ended up hiring me when I left high school. He teaches film and screenwriting, and when I was a teenager, he was the person encouraging me to be 110% myself and giving me a safe space to experiment everything about myself and the world.
