College, Graduate School, additional study:

  • B.A., Vassar College English & Secondary Education

Born in: East Lyme, CT

I Teach: Senior English

I Teach Courage: I believe that in order to develop writers, speakers and problem solvers through the Senior English course, students need to practice taking risks in the classroom.  Through developing personal voice in their expository writing, sharing with depth and creativity in their Senior Soliloquies, and exploring and taking a stand on a global issue of their choice, courage comes to the forefront of my students’ everyday classroom expectations.

Certifications: Certified course for AP English Language & Composition approved by College Board

Hobbies: cooking, reading, making jewelry

Why Hyde: I love being a “whole person” when I work with kids, not just a figure at the front of the room.  I believe sharing myself with students helps them grow, and it helps me become a better teacher/person as well.
