TEACHING EXPERIENCE

S. Renee Mitchell, M.B.A., is an award-winning writer, storyteller, performer, playwright, public speaker, curriculum designer, social justice grant writer, creative consultant and multi-media artist. She had a 25-year career as a newspaper journalist and was nominated - twice - for the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in commentary. After leaving journalism, Renee became a popular writer-in-residence and curriculum developer. She quickly noticed that many of her younger students were shy, insecure and/or bullied. Renee had similar experiences when she was growing up. So, she decided to do something to help change that and empower marginalized young people to find their voice, build their courage and self-esteem and learn valuable social skills. No one should feel powerless in the face of a bully! As a result, Renee wrote and illustrated her first book for children, which includes a Parent/Teacher Handbook. Renee further developed the idea, using Common Core Standards-based curriculum, to encourage children to be SUPER Heroes, thereby celebrating the qualities of empathy, compassion and kindness, which can help break the cycle of bullying.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Very hands-on, with lots of opportunities to use imagination, music and creativity.
