Our goals are to come together as Stranger Things fans.
I have a bachelor's degree in educational studies and more than 20 credits towards a masters degree in history. I have 5 years teaching experience including teaching film studies courses. I have been a Stranger Things fan since it first premiered in 2016. I also have lived experience having once been in the same age group as the teenagers portrayed on this show, though I am an adult now I can still relate well to this age group.
