Chris Koslosky

Chris retired last June from The Janus School in Mount Joy, where she taught Spanish and English Language Arts to middle school and high school students. As a teacher, she has especially relished the teaching of writing, as she is an enthusiastic writer herself and enjoys helping students overcome their fears and doubts about the often intimidating process.  At Janus, Chris developed an annual literary magazine showcasing the best student writing of each school year.  She has judged student writing in contests including the Scholastic writing competition and a playwriting contest through the Hershey Theatre. Here at Creative York, Chris runs a group called Playwrights of the White Rose, which meets once a month to read and review each other’s playwriting efforts.
