Meet our new Upper School English Teacher: Caroline Santinelli
The Peak School is pleased to announce Caroline Santinelli as our new Upper School English Teacher! Here is a little bio from her:
Hi folks! My name is Caroline Santinelli. I'm an east coast transplant to the Rockies, originally from Concord, Massachusetts, but for the last year, I've called Leadville home. I earned my bachelor's degree from Middlebury College, where I studied Environmental Nonfiction Writing (very liberal arts) and minored in Education Studies. Currently, I spend summers back in the Green Mountains of Vermont at the Bread Loaf School of English, where I am earning a master's degree in English Language and Literature. Before I began teaching, I had a brief career in digital media. Through this journey, I was lucky enough to be part of a pilot program for the National Geographic Society’s Storytelling Bootcamp as an organizer and an assistant video instructor. In the process, I realized how much I missed being in an instructive role—developing curiosity and inspiring deeper learning—which brought me back to the high school English classroom last year. I love all manner of outdoor activities, particularly climbing and backcountry skiing. When I’m not in the mountains, I spend time reading, writing, cooking, and listening to podcasts. I’m thrilled to be joining The Peak School community, and I look forward to getting to know everyone!
