Asia, smiling in front of a mural.
Asia Calcagno

Ever since her 9th grade poetry unit, poetry has followed Asia in her personal and professional life. She has spent a majority of her career working directly with students through time spent as a 9th grade English Language Arts teacher, a teaching artist, and in educational non-profit preparing students for corporate internships and supporting students and educators on college campuses. She has experience sustaining community and school partnerships, developing curriculum, facilitating professional developments, and managing writing programming. Asia gained an MFA from Bennington College and loves tending to her plants, reading the Sagittarius horoscope, and exploring on her bike.
