Elizabeth joins LightSail after spending several years as a middle school ELA teacher at the Kingsborough Early College Secondary School in south Brooklyn. During this time, she served as the school’s lead teacher, English Department Chair and literacy coach. Before teaching, Elizabeth worked as a program manager for education nonprofits in New York City. Elizabeth has a BA in English from Carleton College in Minnesota where she learned how to brave the cold and enjoy midwestern accents.
If Elizabeth could be be any fictional character, she would be Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, because Lizzie Bennet is quick-witted, strong-willed, and a devoted friend and sister.
