About Heather

Heather Adkins lives with her husband and daughter on a (non-working) farm just outside Nashville, Tennessee. She teaches high school English to the best students in the world, and hopes they leave her classroom with a desire to go learn something else. In addition to teaching teenagers, Heather regularly presents at conferences and facilitates workshops for other teachers of writing. When not teaching or ignoring the endless pile of laundry, she enjoys monogramming everything not moving, party planning, Googling, and watching college football.

She is the author of Anything Less Than Everything and "No Detectable Difference," featured in What Teaching Means: Stories From America's Classrooms.
