Hello!, My name is Vanessa Arroyo and I am the 9th and 10th grade English Teacher as well as the Public Communications Teacher at BMA. I was a Bridgeport Public School student myself-I went to High Horizons Magnet School and Central High School. After high school, I went to Assumption College and received a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature and Secondary Education. This past December, I received my Master's Degree in English Literature from Southern New Hampshire University. I not only have a love for English, but the arts as well and love acting and drama! I became a teacher because I wanted to give students a mentor and role model, just as teachers in the past gave to me! This past year, I was awarded a Teacher of the Year award from the Bridgeport Public Education Fund and hope to continue my journey in making a different for Bridgeport students!
