Biography:
A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of St. Lawrence University, Eileen began her career in education in the Mississippi Delta as a Teach For America corps member.  Following her two-year service commitment, Eileen continued her involvement with Teach For America in various capacities, including program director in the Connecticut region and school director at the Philadelphia training institute. She completed her graduate study in literature at Boston College, and taught there as an adjunct faculty member in the First Year Writing program. Upon returning to teaching full-time, Eileen worked at a suburban high school in Fairfield County, Connecticut, for several years, and served as an adjunct instructor in the Literature Core program at Fairfield University. Eileen has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the English Speaking Union of the United States of America for further study at the East/West Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, and Oxford University.  She completed an EdM degree at Teachers’ College in 2014.  Delighted to be back at her alma mater, Eileen teaches in the English department, directs the UPenn Independent School Teaching Residency Program at Taft, and follows the Varsity Field Hockey season each year religiously.  She lives on campus with her family and is currently pursuing a certificate in School Leadership and Management through Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education.
