About Tova

My name is Tova C. and I am originally from Lafayette, LA but I was raised in Austin, TX. I went to school at the University of Houston and earned my BA in English Literature with a minor in History. My passion is creative writing with an emphasis on poetry. I run a weekly poetry slam here in Austin called the Austin Poetry Slam and I also find time to have adult writing workshops, performance workshops and tour the country.

During the day, I am a floating teacher with Kipp Austin, and I am currently working on a computer science class for K-4th grade students.

What I love the most about teaching is the kids I get to interact with every day. Kids are the most amazing little humans on the planet and all they want to do it laugh, play and learn. I get the most thought provoking and insight ideas and questions for my students. I love interacting with my fellow teachers and staff I am really here for the kids and they know that I am here for them and would give them the moon if I could. Since I am not able to do that I try to make sure that all of my students have the tools to survive in this world. As long as they are functional people when they leave me then I have done my job.

I am only here help, encourage and motivate you to be your best self. I will show to the tools on how to meet any challenge and goals. I would love to work with you and start your journey to success!

Qualifications Summary: I have a BA in English Literature from the University of Houston. I run weekly writing workshops and performance workshops. And I teach at KIPP Elementary School.
