Lean In (I am an ELL teacher and the head of my department.) 3. In fiction, anything that strikes my fancy. :) I am currently watching: 1. The new season of Cobra Kai! (I love Johnny. He rocks.) 2. Curb your Enthusiasm (Larry David's writing is outstanding.) 3. The Bear (Watch this show. The writing is also outstanding.) Personal philosophy: "If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain." (Emily Dickinson) My favorite writers: There are so many. (I love reading and writing.) Off the top of my head, S. King, Poe, Hawthorne, Flannery O'Connor, Margaret Atwood, Harper Lee, Truman Capote, Fannie Flagg, F. Scott Fitzgerald, O.
