About Elizabeth

Hi there, I'm Lizzy. I'm an academic writer, avid reader, and typo-finder with an abiding love for children's literature. I have worked in summer camps as a counselor, love being around kids, and majored in English during college. Learning is one of my greatest passions, and I am currently working on my master's degree in food studies at NYU. I have also worked in talk radio as a writer, and volunteer twice a week helping a new museum, the Museum of Food and Drink get off the ground.

I have always loved the English language and all of its quirks, and can't wait to pass on that knowledge.

As I mentioned before, I hold a degree in English from Beloit College. I have an expansive vocabulary, and really love learning new words. I love word games like Scrabble, Boggle, and Bananagrams, and was beating adults at them from a young age. I would be happy to teach them to any child. Also, I adore reading aloud. Books and imagination truly make me happy, and I've often been told that my enthusiasm for them is infectious.

I know words. It is rare that I ever misspell anything. Additionally, I have always liked spelling and feel that unscrambling games and other fun spelling challenges are an easy way to get kids excited about learning.

I can't wait to get started passing on my love of reading and writing!
