Miranda Cornell

Miranda Cornell is from Brooklyn, NY and lives up to the stereotype (she owns five different black cardigans and kale is her favorite vegetable). She is a Drama and Education double major at Vassar, where she is in her junior year. She’s excited to be in the course because storytelling is the main reason that she chose both of her majors, and being able to explore new mediums is an opportunity that she doesn’t often have! She spent last semester in Glasgow, Scotland, which she misses terribly but is happy to be back in a place where the sun shines for more than twenty minutes a day.

On campus, she’s the President of the Philaletheis Society, Vice President of Challah For Hunger, and a new member of Idlewild. This semester, she is working on the Drama Department’s production of A Little Night Music as the assistant director, which is taking up 92% of her time but she loves it regardless.

Outside of Vassar, you can probably find her (shockingly) doing theater, drinking english breakfast tea, and re-living her childhood by finally reading and watching Harry Potter for the first time. She’s a big fan of parentheses (clearly), eating good food, and talking about her cats. Her main goal is this semester is to order mac & cheese in a bread bowl from Panera, because up until two months ago, she did not realize that this glorious, carb-filled meal was even possible.

Rosie Trammell

Rosalynde Trammell hates her absurdly long name and would much rather you call her Rosie. She is currently a junior at Arlington High School and is attempting to balance her favorite hobbies of acting, baking and reading with her overwhelming course load. Rosie is a stereotypical nerd (she’s awkward, asthmatic, wears glasses etc.), but she embraces her true nature and will gladly spend all day talking about Harry Potter, or one of her other many nerdy passions. Rosie appears to be outgoing, but in reality is very shy and hates writing about herself.

Jacy Sun

(Kyoto, Japan. Jul. 2016)

Hi! My name is Jacy, currently a sophomore at Vassar college studying Education and Asian Studies. I was born in China and lived in Beijing during elementary school. Then my family moved to Bay Area, California when I was in 6th grade. I am fluent in Chinese and am (struggling to) learn French. I love traveling and photography. I’ve been to more than 20 countries and still longing for many other interesting places. I play a traditional Chinese music instrument named Gu Zheng. I love children, and therefore education, for children’s endless potential given the opportunity and for the importance of positive influence in their early years. Glad to be working with everyone this semester!

My name is Annelise. I am a Psychology major and Education minor. I am a Junior at Vassar College from Philadelphia, PA. My favorite things are writing creative stories, lifting weights, and biking. The coolest thing I ever did was hike to the top of a mountain without falling.

I love to work with young children and learn about behavior. I also help at the Vassar farm with the Exploring program, which teaches 1-3 graders about nature. Right now, my job is to make smoothies and milkshakes! A fun fact is that my family has two chickens and a little dog named Twix.



Noah Webster

Salutations! Noah Webster at your service! I am a senior at Vassar College, about to graduate with a major in History and Minor in Educational Studies. I come from the great state of Maryland, which has the best state flag in the whole country. Look it up!

On campus I do a weekly radio show about news and current events, and I have a job as a driver for the Field Work Office. I love studying history, reading, writing, and watching videos on YouTube. I collect and paint miniatures for Warhammer 40,000, a tabletop war game. I also love video games and role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons. When I can find the time I like to go camping, which is a good opportunity to use my Eagle Scout skills.

When I finish college I hope to teach history at the high school level. It’s always been my favorite subject, and I can’t wait to share it with students of my own. I’m looking forward to all the things I will learn in EDUC 373!
