My name is Ms. Brotman and this will be my first year at VAAS. I have experience teaching at the secondary and postsecondary level, which includes both high school and college-level English. For the 21-22 school year, I will be teaching English 9, English 10, and Creative Writing.
Education has always been an essential component in my life. I have a B.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing and an M.A. in English Literature. During my English studies, my interests and foci included Children's and Adolescent Literature, Literary Theory & Criticism, and American Literature. In addition to writing and literature, I am also exceptionally passionate about educational access and equity for underserved and underrepresented students, which led me to earning an M.A. in Educational Leadership and Policy for Higher Education.
It is my goal to create a dynamic, engaging, and relevant classroom experience for all students and I am looking forward to an amazing school year.
