Molly began her teaching in Peace Corps Nepal. She came to develop a passion around the idea that education can save the world. She took this idea to the inner city of Phoenix where she taught at a charter school for at-risk youth downtown. From here, she and her husband moved to Denver, Molly's hometown.
In Denver, she has taught both middle school and high school English at all levels. She began teaching at Cherokee Trail High School in the fall of 2006, and has developed curriculum for an intervention course for writers as well as an American Literature Honors course to facilitate more students to take Advanced Placement courses.
She has been the instructional coach at Cherokee Trail for the last two years. She not only coaches teachers and helps new teachers acclimate to her school, but she began an innovative program to facilitate more teachers to develop leadership from the classroom. This program has created a more collaborative environment at Cherokee Trail where more teachers have a voice in creating quality learning for all students.

About the National Blogging CollaborativeNational Blogging Collaborative (NBC) is a free service created for teachers, by teachers in an effort to get more educators contributing their voices to the national education narrative.
Since October, 2014, NBC has been cultivating and supporting the capacity of all educators to use their unique voice to elevate the craft of teaching and learning. NBC’s founders have been supporting and encouraging teachers to write - write with each other, write independently, write on topics of professional importance, and/or write on topics of personal interest. NBC has also developed a network of coaches who support you in the writing process.
If you’re new to blogging, NBC will help you find your passions and identify possible solutions to your problems of practice. NBC coaches will support you in developing confidence and skills necessary to share your authentic voice.
If you’re an experienced blogger, NBC protocols will help you to refine your writing and make it more intentional. NBC coaches offer a sounding board for your ideas, a critical eye in the editing process, and one-on-one support that will take your writing to the next level.
If you’re thinking about co-blogging, NBC can also help you to develop a true collaborative partnership.Visit the National Blogging Collaborative today to learn more: The NBC homepage The National Blogging Collaborative's Services Ways to get started with the National Blogging Collaborative
