What’s a typical day like for you? Teaching, student appointments, planning meetings, (when I can fit them in) — walking around the city, writing, hot yoga.

(Above) – Joanna talks about what she’s passionate about: teaching and writing about teaching in her blog Teacherpants.

 What would you like to be remembered for?  Helping people see the world in a new way.

 What role does fashion play in your life? Fashion is fun as a spectator sport, but it is also one item in my professional tool box  I love to give the impression that I put that extra bit of effort into the way I look: it’s a way of standing out but also showing respect —  for my students, my co-workers, and my profession.

What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective?  The clothes give me the ease of mobility that I need to do my job well, but they still look amazing. I find that the clothes fit my body in a realistic way, that I’m not forcing myself into garments that weren’t designed for my body shape.  I’m much more comfortable physically, but shopping at  Fresh Collective has also greatly enhanced my self-esteem.

What do you have that you want to promote?  My blog Teacherpants –it’s a very personal exploration of the experience of teaching.  I’m not a big educational theory person:  I’m trying to get at how teaching feels as an emotional, even physical, experience. My goal is to write posts that have relevance beyond the classroom, so you don’t have to be a teacher to relate.
