Christina Gil

Christina Gil was a high-school English teacher for sixteen years, but she recently left the classroom to follow a dream and move with her family to an ecovillage in rural Missouri. She blogs about empowering students to find their own answers at GilTeach.com.

She believes that analyzing a poem with twenty seventeen-year-olds is a fabulous way to spend an hour or so, that teenagers should celebrate the epic battles of their lives (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Fun-Creative-Writing-Assignm...), and that Shakespeare is always better with sound effects.

When she is not hauling water to her tiny home, she can be found homeschooling her two kids or meeting with her neighbors about the best way to run their village.
