Tags Kirkland College

Between writing published works and inspiring high school students, Nancy Dafoe K’74 leads a very busy life. Dafoe has had two published works come out in back-to-back Marches. The first is Breaking Open the Box, which is about teaching creative approaches to academic writing, came out last March. In her abstract, Nancy Dafoe says, “A methodology incorporating creativity demonstrates the kind of progress we are seeking, offering an exciting challenge for young writers and educators alike.” The other work is Writing Creatively: A Guided Journal, coming out this month. Dafoe has also had several other works published including: An Iceberg in Paradise: A Passage through Alzheimer’s, Reading Kerouac, and Before I Knew My Father.

Nancy Dafoe lives in Homer, NY and works as an English Teacher at East Syracuse-Minoa Central High School, teaching classes such as Journalism and Creative Writing. During her time at Kirkland, Nancy majored in English Literature. From there, she went on to receive a Master of Arts in Teaching, focusing in English, from SUNY College of Cortland.
