About Ms. Teller:
After graduating from The Ohio State University with a BA in Art History in 2001, I moved to California where I went back to school, earning my teaching credential in English from Chapman University and my MA in English from National University.
I taught for several years in Placerville, CA, until I decided I had to be closer to the mountains. I moved to the Truckee/North Tahoe area in 2010. Since that time, I have worked as an English teacher, teacher trainer, and curriculum specialist for an online school. I have taught all levels of HS English, from 9th to AP, Creative Writing, and AVID. I love teaching because every day in a classroom is challenging and rewarding. My students always surprise me with their creativity, ingenuity, kindness, and drive- they give me hope for the future! Teaching at NTHS has been a longtime dream that is finally coming true.
When I am not teaching, I am outside enjoying all Tahoe has to offer with my husband and my dog. I also volunteer with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Nevada County and North Tahoe.
