Alicia McCauley, Consultant
Alicia McCauley is a first grade teacher and a Teacher Consultant for the Northern California Writing Project. This gives her ample opportunities to overcome her fear of public speaking by talking with fellow teachers about her passion: teaching kids to love writing. Throughout her childhood Alicia won awards for her truly magnificent poetry. She’s since stopped torturing people with bad poetry and instead spends her free time trying not to crash while endurance cycling. Alicia spends her summers volunteering as a writing teacher and philanthropist in Northern Uganda. She’s the founder and CEO of Vigilante Kindness, an organization vigilant in the pursuit of sustainable education and employment opportunities for people in developing countries. Alicia is published in the anthology What Teaching Means: Stories from America’s Classrooms and is a featured blogger for A News Cafe.
