Carla Odell

Phone: 610-868-2971 Ext. 2444

For two decades, Carla worked as a writer and editor in the NYC magazine market. But with a B.A. in the dual study of Journalism and English from Syracuse University, she had long felt a tug toward the other half of her degree. The tug won. In 2002 she began an 8-year teaching career in New Jersey, first with Hackensack Middle School before moving to Hunterdon County, where she taught Sophomore English and Senior AP Literature and Composition at North Hunterdon High School. She’s thrilled to be now living and working in PA, having joined our extraordinary learning community here at Charter Arts.

In addition, Carla holds an M.A. in English/Writing Studies from William Paterson University and has been honored with multiple awards for both fiction and nonfiction.

When Carla isn’t teaching, she’s an early-morning lap swimmer and likes pretending she’s on Chopped while cooking dinner with her husband in their empty nest.
