Today, I chat with my former colleague Patricia Monticello Kievlan. She is a writer and educator based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She spent eight years working in independent schools as a teacher and administrator, and she now works as the Program Associate for Community Building at The Sprout Fund, a nonprofit that enriches the Pittsburgh region’s vitality by engaging citizens, amplifying voices, supporting creativity and innovation, and cultivating connected communities. In addition to her work with Sprout, Tricia writes and edits for GraphiteCommon Sense Media‘s website for educators, and she’s a proud member of the Pittsburgh education community as a member of the Remake Learning Network. She also works as an instructional designer and teaching consultant with local independent schools and nonprofits.

Tricia holds a master’s degree in Mind, Brain, and Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a bachelor’s degree in Plan II Honors and English from the University of Texas at Austin.
