GingerSass - adding ginger to your sass

I’m a ginger (natural redhead/ auburn haired individual) who has often been told that I am “snarky,” “sarcastic,” and “sassy.” Thus, “GingerSass” was born.

I started regularly blogging in March 2011. My blog was started to cope with a socially awkward situation, and it has evolved into something more than a cure for social awkwardness. It has become a part of who I am.

I am a writer and high school English teacher in central New Jersey. My blog primarily concentrates on the intersection of my queer, writer, and educator identities, something that I find myself challenging on a regular basis.

GingerSass has given me a lot of unexpected opportunities. My writing has been featured through the NOH8 Project and BlogHer, and I have been lucky enough to have spoken at various speaking engagements and universities. I also regularly perform poetry throughout New Jersey.

I can be found on Twitter as @THEGingerSass.

    You have GOT to be KIDDING me! You could literally change the bio to say my name, and it would almost EXACTLY apply!! Though, I’ve been out of college apparently longer than is socially acceptable to say “recently” and been through the Hell that is grad school. (Actually grad school was a breeze compared to my undergrad! Ask if you want to know more.) We might be separated at birth, Kailynn…a few years apart. ;D I definitely want to talk to you more–so, find me on Facebook–I hardly check my email anymore. And I’m kinda done w/ Twitter–it was more of a sociology experiment to gain info for my writing. Seriously, though, let’s chat soon! We have BUNCHES in common!! : ) ❤
