Elizabeth Twitchell is a New Upper School English Teacher
Originally from Gainesville, Florida, Elizabeth went to boarding school at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, and then went on to major in English at Stanford University. After a few real-world jobs—one of which involved answering telephones for someone named “Disco”—Liz returned to academia, and received her MA in art history and PhD in English and American literature from Yale University. After holding faculty positions at Bard College, Connecticut College, and New York University, Liz is thrilled to make the move to independent school teaching, and doubly thrilled to make that move at Trinity. Liz lives with her husband, daughter, and dog in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, and would like everyone to know that she once rode her bicycle up Mont Ventoux and that it was really hard and that she hopes never to do it again.
