College Counseling

Christina Iglesias

College Counseling Writing Specialist

I'm overjoyed to bring my experience as a writing instructor, independent college counselor and humanities teacher to Ransom Everglades in my hometown of Miami. Prior to my arrival at RE, I taught writing, composition and literature courses at Columbia University, where I earned a PhD in English and Comparative Literature. I also spent several years serving as a book editor, writing coach and independent college counselor, assisting students with college selection and essay development. Prior to my time at Columbia, I earned a BA in English with minors in Classics and Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the University of Florida. I graduated from Lourdes Academy here in Miami, where I now live with my husband and two boys. In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano and growing orchids.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
