Nancy Lester Elitzer is a New Teacher of English

Nancy is returning to Trinity as a half-time English teacher in the Middle School after a long career as an Upper School teacher. During a one year leave of absence in 2005-2006 she and her family lived in Lake Placid, New York where she wrote a collection of essays on the life of a New Yorker living in the rural northern Adirondacks. Upon her return to New York City, Nancy was a DOROT volunteer with housebound elderly, a college essay consultant, English tutor, and student of Modern Hebrew and Torah. She has periodically returned to Trinity to substitute when needed, most recently as Dan Alford’s replacement during his paternity leave. She lives on the Upper West Side with her husband, Michael; son, David ’13; and Labrador retrievers, Wilson and Olive. Welcome back, Nancy!
