Lynn Mittler

JK-12 English/Language Arts Department Chair
St. Louis, MO
With over twenty years of experience in the classroom, Lynn Mittler has had the opportunity to create and implement numerous pedagogical initiatives. She has presented on a variety of topics from “Coaching in the Classroom” to “Taking Empathy to Action” to “Engaging 21st Century English” to “Nonfiction Blogging.” Her current project has been the creation of an English class that uniquely combines the study of nonfiction, documentary filmmaking, social enterprise and global issues. This class has allowed her the opportunity to implement the use of Design Thinking process with students both in the writing process as well as in the creation of larger projects. Her hope is that working through this process will allow students to engage with their own creative and innovative ideas.
