Caitlin MacLeod-Bluver

Caitlin is an English and ESL teacher at Boston International High School in Boston Public Schools. Her students are all recent immigrants to Boston, coming from nearly 15 different countries and speaking over 10 languages. In her classes, Caitlin uses both fiction and nonfiction to study race and power, oppression and resistance, and membership and communities. She hopes to empower her students to use their voices to advocate for justice.

Originally from Shelburne, MA, Caitlin is excited to be back in Western Mass for the summer. When not in school, you will find her hiking, playing outside, or cooking summer meals.
