Lori taught English in Brooklyn for 11 years in what politicians refer to as "failing schools." She stayed in such schools by choice. She has her Masters in English Education from Brooklyn College and Doctorate in Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. She left her job as a high school English teacher this past fall to purse a career in teaching English in community college in the City University of New York. She's interested (personally and academically) in issues of teaching, race, curriculum, and urban education. She talks more about these issues on her blog: readwriteteach.org
