Ms. Anne M. Phaneuf

The 2016/2017 academic year marks my twentieth year teaching English at Nantucket High School. My classes this year include English I, English II, and Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition. Teaching students how to develop their reading and writing skills is definitely my passion, and I love witnessing the power of storytelling in the classroom. I grew up in Chelmsford, Mass., and worked for several years in high-tech marketing communications after graduating from college with an English degreee. I received my master's in journalism and also worked for several years writing for magazines and newspapers. I came to Nantucket 26 years ago to write for the local newspaper and feel very fortunate to have made my home here ever since. My husband and I have two children: my son Luke is a 9th grader this year, and my daughter Claire is a freshman at Bates College.
