After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, Lizzie Torres received her Ed.M in Teaching and Curriculum from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. From Boston, Lizzie moved to New York City where she spent a decade teaching AP Literature and Language Arts in New York City. As a teacher, her classroom served as a lab site for city-wide inter-visitations focusing on reading and writing conferences.

More recently, Lizzie worked as the Senior Manager of Teaching and Learning for the LEARN Network in Chicago.

Lizzie loves green tea, and because she cannot choose her favorite, her Kindle has at least 20 great books.
