Jillian Kneeland has been teaching secondary English for eight years. She received her BA in English from the University of Tampa and her MA in Comparative Literature from Goldsmiths University of London. Born and raised in Rome, Italy, much of her teaching has been abroad at international schools, including in the UK, Turkey, and Panama. She also served with Americorps following her bachelor's degree, a service experience she cherishes as her most rewarding teaching experience thus far. Jill is also a certified yoga instructor, enjoys playing soccer (and supporting the Italian national team), and is the mother of a wonderous baby girl.
