“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey

Annie Pulsipher joined Poly Prep as a Middle School history teacher in 2021. She has previous experience teaching history, humanities, and creative writing at Little Red School House, City School of the Arts, and Carnegie Mellon University where she got her master’s. Her passion for history stems from her historian mother, who spent much of Annie’s childhood taking her to museums, historical reenactments, and dusty archives to decode handwriting samples. Annie believes one of the most vital aspects of history education is teaching students to decode sources and unearth neglected perspectives to understand that history is not a set of rigid facts, but an ongoing exploration of humanity. Annie also loves integrating her arts background into her teaching to make history class as creative and project-centered as possible. When not teaching, she spends her time writing and performing scrappy theater, growing herbs (and mostly not killing them!), and attempting to fancy roller skate without bruising her tailbone.
