Welcome!

I've been a teacher of English at the high school since 2004, and have taught all grade levels of English, plus Creative Writing.

I have a B.A. in English from Cornell University and hold a M.A. in Teaching of English from Montclair State University. 

Please feel free to contact me via e-mail at  lmalanka@tenafly.k12.nj.us  --I find it to be the most convenient way to be in touch.
