Charlotte Muzzi joins the Upper School as an English teacher of analytical writing and British literature. She brings to CWA a rich background and experience, having taught field-based environmental education, coached ESL students, led a seminar in sexual health and sexual violence prevention, and founded a high school writing center. Most recently, she taught an upper-level writing course as a graduate assistant at Florida State University. “I loved watching students discover that writing could help them think more deeply, clearly, and in a more organized fashion,” she says.
Charlotte is also a certified wilderness first responder and led a 38-day trip in northern Alaska last summer—the sophomore Outdoor Ed trips are unlikely to faze her. “I’ve spent the last decade, approximately, leading backpacking and canoeing trips for high school students,” she says. “I appreciate the wild energy and creativity of the age group.”
Charlotte is happy to be joining the CWA community. “My favorite workplaces have always been those where staff work hard not only because they are required to do so, but out of respect for a community and a desire to help an institution serve its greater good,” she says. “CWA seems like this type of place.”
In her spare time, Charlotte enjoys backpacking, writing, and learning to play the guitar. One of her favorite pastimes is running, and she has fond memories of participating on the cross-country team during her own school days. “I was amazingly slow,” she recalls, “but I grew up in northern Minnesota, where fall is particularly gorgeous, and I miss doing long runs on the trails when the leaves were turning.”
