Educator and author-poet
Hi, my name is Chloe Gentile-Montgomery and I am a 22-year-old Black/biracial poet currently based in California's Bay Area (with home ties to Santa Cruz). I self-published my first poetry chapbook on May 28th, 2021 entitled Rustlings of the Spirit, shortly before receiving my B.S. in both Ethnic Studies and Environmental Science from Santa Clara University and graduating Summa Cum Laude (2021).
This website serves as a home for my poetry, including links to buy recent works and access to other writings such as essays and blog posts.
I dream of using my education to inform my journey of becoming a K-12 educator in the next year at Stanford's Teacher Education Program. I will use my background in Ethnic Studies in order to collaborate with BIPOC students on how to best support them as I go on to teach Social Science.
Thank you so much for supporting my dreams, I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you!
