Molly Tant



My name is Molly Tant and I have been teaching English and ELD at FHS for the last six years.  Teaching English is my jam because it involves two of my very favorite things: reading and writing.  Reading is a gateway to different worlds and different perspectives.  Books teach empathy and compassion, friendship, what it means to be a hero.  They give us an escape from life’s troubles and teach us that, despite what our mind is constantly telling us, we are not alone in what we feel, think, and experience. Writing is a way to express ourselves, to allow ourselves to be heard. It is a way to get our thoughts and feelings out instead of bottling them up - an outlet and a creative space.


When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, my husband, and our Chiweenie, Clyde.  Some of my favorite books include:

  • the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  • My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
