Ms. Bornstein came to teaching after 20 years as a journalist. She grew up in Louisville, KY, earned a Bachelor's of Science in Journalism, and went on to report for papers and magazines in Chicago, Jerusalem, New York, and Albuquerque before serving as the final theater critic for the Rocky Mountain News from 1999 to 2009. After the paper closed, she earned her teaching license and a Master's in Educational Psychology from the University of Colorado-Denver. Ms. Bornstein has been at Teller since 2013 and loves it so much that her daughter, Mila, now attends school here, too! She loves any kind of art, international travel, and strange humor -- and of course her Teller students!
