Life After Ertegun House

This rich, multifaceted and complex ecosystem continues to support me as I take my next step working as a high-school English teacher in Washington, D.C. Ertegun House enlarged my knowledge, facilitated an exchange of ideas I’d never even had before, and extended my vision into practice—but the most important thing is that Ertegun House isn’t really a place for me: it’s a feeling, a way of life. Even as I’m leaving Oxford, I’m taking it with me –from St. Giles’ into my literature classroom.
