Amanda M. Greenwell is Assistant Professor of English and English Secondary Education Specialist in the Department of English at CCSU. A former Connecticut high school English teacher, she now prepares pre-service teachers at CCSU for their future work in CT middle and high school English classrooms. Because of her former life as a high school English teacher who taught literature across eras and geographical borders (and her current life teaching educators to do so), her interests in her discpiline are far ranging. Her research specialties, however, include literature written for young people and the figure of the child in American literature, and she is particularly interested in texts that push back against hegemonic institutions and narrow narratives of belonging. She is also a Teacher Consultant for the Connecticut Writing Project
