MA - History/English Teacher
Elin has 12 years of teaching experience in a wide variety of settings. She has taught in adult education, elementary education, and high school settings. Elin earned her Bachelor’s Degree in English and her Master’s Degree in applied linguistics. She has taught all levels of English and Social Studies throughout her career. She also has experience in a number of treatment settings including working as a live-in Family Teacher for almost three years where she earned two national certifications in the Teaching-Family Model.
She has found her work with teens to be rewarding and values the opportunity to help teenage girls mend relationships with their families, refocus their lives, and achieve their dreams. Elin is so excited to be a part of the team at Eva Carlston, where she can fuse her passion for teaching with her desire to motivate teenage girls to gain confidence and to become strong, independent, intelligent women.
Elin believes that, “Empowering women when they are young helps them to be fearless in their pursuit of their dreams and ambitions when they are older.” In her free time Elin loves spending time in nature, traveling, doing yoga, cooking, and reading, all while doting on her miniature schnauzer, Franz.
