MANAGEMENT & STAFF
Corrie Kerr: Editor
Corrie's love of education, language arts, history and technology date back to her museum trips, her many days spent poring over novels and her earliest “social” account on the Prodigy bulletin board system.
Since then, she’s earned a master of arts in teaching from Simmons College, worked in higher ed at Wesleyan University and edited textbooks at Pearson Education. She wrote for one of the earliest online newsletters and honed her PR expertise by successfully promoting various New England businesses and nonprofits.
Corrie’s most recent classroom experience was working as a Response to Intervention Language Arts Teacher for middle school students. The best part about being in the classroom was learning from her students and watching them get excited about current events and great storytelling. Corrie's endorsed to teach English and English as a Second Language.
She is thrilled to be EducationWorld’s Editor as of summer 2014 and looks forward to hearing from educators across the country about their daily classroom victories and struggles.
