(That’s “Elle” like the magazine, and it stands both for the letter—the initial of her legal name—and the start of her Hebrew name, Eliava.)
Born in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico (in 1989 like Taylor Swift), a wordy girl moved to Chicago for college and never left. Somewhere along the way, she also fell in love with Judaism and became Eliava Zoheret.
Elle is a bilingual educator, differentiation specialist, doctoral candidate, and freelance writer living with her roommate M and their cat Miss Kiwi.
When she is not planning lessons, grading essays, writing papers, or fighting with her blog, Elle can be found watching TV, curled up with a book, remodeling houses in The Sims, or leveling her druid in World of Warcraft. Sometimes she also sleeps.
