Michelle Andelman teaches grade 9 English. She came to Harker in 2015 after a career change from the world of publishing. Her love of books started Ms. Andelman's career as a literary agent for children's and YA novels, but a love of teaching took her to teaching composition and literature at several schools in the public university system of New York City. Additionally, she taught English as part of NYU's Upward Bound program, which serves economically disadvantaged high schoolers who are potential first-generation college students.
Ms. Andelman volunteers with Kara, a grief counseling group based in Palo Alto. She also enjoys finding beautiful spots in the Bay Area for hiking with her husband, young son, and two dogs.
