Dr. Jody Polleck, Faculty

Jody Polleck is an Assistant Professor in Adolescent Literacy at Hunter College.  She is also a 10th grade English teacher at a small high school in the Lower East Side in New York City.  Jody began her work with urban youth in 1994 when she was a counselor for runaway teenagers in Washington, D.C.  In 1999, she received her Master’s degree in English education and worked as a high school reading and English teacher in a dropout prevention program.  In 2002, she was awarded National Board Certification, and in 2003, she received a fellowship to New York University where she completed her doctoral degree in English education.  Her research focuses on urban adolescents and their experiences in student-led book clubs, as well as culturally responsive instruction in English language arts classrooms. 

At the Literacy Space, Jody guides and supports teacher candidates as they tutor adolescent students who struggle with reading and writing.
