Hello, I am Vanessa Carroll. I’m thrilled to join Summit as an English II teacher along with Ms. Royal. A native New Englander, I attended Bates College prior to moving to Colorado to work for Americorps. I’m a National Board Certified teacher with a Masters in English from CU Boulder, and I’ve spent the bulk of my ten year career teaching AP and IB English. I also enjoyed working as a writing consultant to the CO School of Mines and evaluating new teacher candidates for the state of Colorado. I’m an avid Destination Imagination coach, and I’ve twice led teams to the global tournament level. I spend my free time reading, making soap, and being outdoorsy with my husband and three children. I loved working as Summit’s English Lab tutor last year, and I’m excited to transition into teaching English II!
