I am a storyteller and a matchmaker, both by inclination and profession. At this point in my life, that means that I work as a college counselor in an independent school in New Jersey's Delaware Valley (USA). I spend my autumns coaching essay-writing, my winters modeling and preaching patience and perspective, my springs getting to know a new group of students as I help them get to know themselves, and my summers thinking deeply about each of my rising seniors in turn as I write letters in support of their candidacy for university admission.

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!
That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.
Do you mind passing my message along to students and your colleagues again?
Hi Shelley. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
