Alice Lesnick is Term Professor of Education, Director of the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program, and Coordinator of Africana Studies at Bryn Mawr College. A Faculty Associate in the Institute for Writing and Thinking since 1993, Alice is the editor of The Breaking Project. She studies literacies of learning with particular interest in collaborative learning; networked learning; and the bridging of formal and informal contexts of education. Poetry is one means of this study; qualitative action research another. A former preschool, elementary, middle, and high school teacher (in which role she began writing poems), Alice now directs Lagim Tehi Tuma (dreamwork we do together), the Dalun BiCo Community Fellowships project linking Bryn Mawr and Haverford College undergraduates with various education projects in Northern Ghana. She lives with her husband and two daughters (well, one is away at college, but still).
