I recently had the pleasure of meeting Matthew Finch, a young British writer and teacher, who until a short time ago was working as a curriculum consultant with a literacy organization in New York City. He has taught every age group from four years old to 40, working as a classroom teacher and outreach specialist, and he holds a PhD in History from the University of London. He has taught Shakespeare and German in junior school, cultural studies to Aimhigher students, and James Bond to undergraduates. I hope he’ll be teaching the grandparent generation one of these days! Matt is currently training teachers in Ayacucho, Peru, but before he left for South America, he conducted a lively interview with me. To read it, go to And to keep up with Matt's adventures in Peru, go to
