Joanne Hindley

Joanne Hindley, one of the founding members of the Manhattan New School, spends her long school days teaching children and teaching teachers. To her important work at this public elementary school in New York City, Joanne brings many years' experience as a teacher of inner-city children, as a staff developer, and as a co-leader of the Teachers College Writing Project. Alongside her current role, Joanne often serves as a consultant to school districts throughout the United States, conducting demonstration lessons, leading workshops, and delivering keynote addresses.

During summer months, Joanne can be found teaching at summer literacy institutes throughout the country, but she makes sure to carve out enough time between them to take care of her own reading and writing, preferably at the beach.
