• Ms. Daniela Buccilli

    English Teacher


    I earned a B.S. in Secondary English Education from Pennsylvania State University, an MFA from the University of Pittsburgh in fiction and an MFA from Carlow University for poetry. I have taught at Upper St. Clair High School since 2005, and have worked as a public school teacher since 1993. I am a member of the National Writing Project and the Madwomen in the Attic workshop. A collection of my poetry, What it Takes to Carry, was published by Main Street Rag in 2019. I also co-edited the anthology Show Us Your Papers. I have won an Excellence in Teaching award and been published in various journals. 

    I currently teach Academic English 11 and Creative Writing.

    I am faculty advisor for USC's literary magazine Montage, and the teacher sponsor for the club of the same name.

    I have sponsored other student-initiated clubs, including We Will Write Back, and USC-BSU.
