Meet the CCSWP Instructors: Rachel and Kristine

Today, I'd like you to meet one of our newest instructors as well as one of our most veteran. Meet Rachel and Kristine.

My name is Rachel Rothstein and I just completed my senior year at Central Connecticut State University. I am about to student teach at E.B. Kennelly Elementary School in Hartford. I love animals and have several pets. In my spare time I like to travel, read, and cook. I have been working with children for the past six years and look forward to working with the those in the writing project program.

Hello! My name is Kris, and you should know
that I will be with you in just a few weeks
or so. We’ll talk, we’ll write, we’ll edit our words,
and when we’re done, you’ll be as bards
who sing the praises of the world.
I once wrote for the local rags, but now
I teach. I love it so. To give a taste
of writing power - no one can know the joy
it brings. Except the bard.

Hello! My name is Kristine Harger and I am one of the instructors in the 2015 Central Connecticut Student Writing Project. I have been involved with CCSWP and it’s parent organization, Central Connecticut Writing Project, since 2008. I currently teach American Literature and AP/UCONN English Literature at New Britain High School and am a resident of Windsor. I received my bachelor of arts in English at UCONN (go Huskies!), and my master of arts in English at CCSU (go Blue Devils!). Prior to my teaching career, I was a journalist for community newspapers in Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, and Aroostook County, Maine. My passions are poetry (that’s blank verse above), Edgar Allan Poe, and my kitty, Edgar. After a year’s absence, I am so excited to be back teaching at CCSWP - see you all soon!
