Ms. Esposito first wrote for small-scale music magazines to put herself through college, but then soon realized that she enjoyed teaching more. After instructing writing in the CUNY system, and once she taught for a few years in the New York City Department of Education, she found Preston High School where she's worked since 2008. From a pedagogical view, Ms. Esposito believes that kids learn best when they actively engage themselves---whether that involves actually doing the topics at hand, connecting concepts to their real world, or collaborating with peers. Besides this philosophy, though, she also knows that to effectively learn, one must broaden and deepen her experiences. That idea explains why she tries teaching outside her comfort zone, often instructing unexpected topics like Food Justice to teens at Preston and The Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture.
