Congratulations to Dr. Mark Fabrizi, Assistant Professor of Education!

Dr. Fabrizi has recently been appointed Editor for The Leaflet, the journal of the New England Association of Teachers of English (NEATE), the regional affiliate for the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). The goal of The Leaflet is to provide English teachers at all levels with an opportunity to share ideas, research, and classroom experiences with other professionals. The journal is published at least twice per year, spring and fall. The Leaflet has served the members of NEATE for more than 100 years and continues to be a valuable resource for English teachers. “I am excited and honored to be selected as editor of such a well-established and important professional journal that serves so many English teachers in New England”, says Dr. Fabrizi.

Dr. Fabrizi has completed his first issue: Volume 114, Number 2, Winter 2018. He was appointed this job because he had many great ideas on how to improve the professional look and quality of The Leaflet. He started by redesigning the cover with a new and improved logo, creating a new template for the contents, and reaching out to as many English Teachers in New England he could, to assemble an ever growing resource pool for contributions to the journal. English Teachers of Secondary School, College Professors and even soon to be teachers of English are encouraged to submit poetry, stories, editorials, book reviews, cartoons, comics and more.

In Dr. Fabrizi’s latest issue, a very moving article titled “I am a Teacher” was written by Eastern’s own Michelle Wnuk (ENG, ’14), who is certified to teach grades 7-12. Following her program completion from Eastern, Michelle was immediately hired to teach English at RHAM High School and is currently pursuing her Master’s Degree. Dr. Fabrizi says, “I encourage all our English Education students, both current and graduated, to share their creativity and have their voices heard.”
