As an actress and theatre major, she includes any dramatic elements whenever and wherever possible into her teaching. Her curiosity is piqued to begin teaching with Adventures in Writing Camp. She has recently returned to the Bay Area from SoCal and is ready to begin acclimating! This is her 11th year teaching and is excited to work with fellow adventurers and mini-adventurers in creating new books and dreaming new dreams!

Cynthia Starborn, Writing Ranger

Cynthia Starborn is a life-long teacher and creative writer. She has taught all ages from preschool to high school, in both public and private school settings, and particularly loves working with elementary-age students. Her favorite subject to teach is, of course, creative writing! Cynthia started writing stories and poems at the age of five, and has been published in the anthology “365 Moments of Grace” (2016), as well as the anthology “365 Life Shifts” (2017). Cynthia loves helping students to express their unique voice through writing, and she is excited to support campers in having many magical “Adventures in Writing” this summer.
