My name is Alaina Rook and I am a recent LA transplant and CO native. I have my BA in English (concentration Creative Writing) and BA in Art History from the University of Denver, as well as my MA in Secondary English Education from the University of Denver.

My own academic career was marked with achievements, including receiving the Deatt Hudson Scholarship my sophomore year (awarded to one rising Junior or Senior who excels in creative writing), and graduating with University Honors, Cum Laude, and with Distinction in English for my Honors Thesis.

While getting my Masters in Secondary English Education I had the opportunity to work in Denver Public Schools. I was an Apprentice Teacher for six months at Merrill Middle School (ELA--all levels--and Literacy classes). I spent the next six months as an Apprentice Teacher at South High School (Honors World Literature, AVID: College Prep). I have been a tutor for writing, reading, literacy for over a year. In my teaching, I like to ensure that my students are building base skills that will serve them beyond the test or class for which we are studying. I like to create environments of experiential learning, differentiating for each student's specific needs to empower him/her to become the most effective learner.

After graduating, I spent a year working as a grassroots organizer for various political campaigns across the country (Cory Booker for Senate, Planned Parenthood Federation of America). I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my own goals to continue growing as a writer (fiction, screenplays, etc). I love reading, watching films, seeing live music, and appreciating art. I enjoy hiking, doing yoga, and taking dance classes.
