Tricia Ebarvia has been teaching English at Conestoga High School outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since 2001. She currently teaches ninth grade World Literature as well as AP English Language & Composition and AP Seminar. As an educator with 15 years of experience, she believes that developing a love of learning begins with a love of reading—a love she tries to foster each day in the classroom. She also believes that developing student voice is not only an important skill in writing, but a necessary one for students to become engaged, informed citizens. In addition to teaching, she serves as a Co-Director for the Pennsylvania Writing and Literature Project (PAWLP), a site of the National Writing Project (NWP), and contributes bi-monthly to the “From the Classroom” column on the PAWLP website and monthly to MovingWriters.org.
Dr. Kimberly Parker is an English teacher at The Cambridge Rindge & Latin High School in Cambridge, MA. During her 14 years as an educator, Kim has worked successfully to address an achievement gap among struggling readers. She hopes her work in Cambridge helps other educators see the “potential in their historically underserved students.” Throughout her career as a teacher and through myriad leadership roles, Dr. Parker has been an advocate for classroom educators and sees her most powerful role as an educator who helps students grow their love of reading and find a book they’ll be able to connect with.
