Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus
Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus spent thirty-four years teaching public high school in Philadelphia. Her students won national recognition along with off-Broadway productions for their original plays and her teaching was the subject of an award winning documentary, I Used to Teach English. Her writing about education has appeared in several anthologies includingGoing Public with Our Teaching. Most recently, she won an award for Community Blogging from the Education Writers Association for posts to the Public School Notebook. Retired from teaching since 2008, she is in the process of reclaiming the artist she left behind – through photography, mosaics and of course, writing. She is working on a memoir about teaching, a collection of essays and any other project that wonders into her imagination. Finding it hard to tend to herself after a lifetime of nurturing her students, Marsha seeks community with other women and is grateful to AROHO for this opportunity. AROHO Community Organizer.
