Ms. Bri Schaar
7th Grade ELA Instructor
Bri spent three years teaching ELA to 8th, 9th, and 10th graders in the South Bronx. She also worked for one year as a content lead and instructional coach, which afforded her the opportunity to explore her passion for collaborating with other teachers and helping them work towards their professional goals. Prior to this, she worked in the Syracuse City School District while completing her bachelor’s degree in secondary English education. As a graduate student, Bri was a writing consultant for the HEOP & SSS programs at Syracuse University, where she served as an in-house consultant for 120 undergraduate students. Additionally, Bri has spent many years tutoring students in ELA skills, test prep, and phonics.
Bri received her BA in Education and MS in Literacy from Syracuse University (Go Orange!). She studied abroad in Florence, Italy, where she took courses around international education and schooling.
Bri loves the collaborative and student-centered environment that S2 has fostered. She is most excited about building a genuine love for reading and writing in every student. Further, Bri is excited about getting students engaged in their community and exploring opportunities for service and civic engagement.
