About Paul

Paul Barnwell

After growing up and attending college in New England, I arrived in Kentucky in the summer of 2004.  I’ve been here since.  When I’m not gardening, bow-hunting, cooking, writing, reading, or watching plenty of football in the fall, I teach English and Digital Media at Fern Creek Traditional High School in Louisville.  I’m on the Advisory Board for Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf Teacher Network, I blog for CTQ, and I’ve completed summer institute work with the Louisville Writing Project.

My job is important to me, but it doesn’t define me.   I used to spend more time writing solely about teaching and learning, and now I’ve decided to branch out a bit more.  I usually come up with more questions than answers.  Thanks for stopping by to check out the site.

Special thanks to Middlebury College, the Bread Loaf Teacher Network, the CE&S Foundation, and Write to Change in Clemson, SC, for supporting my graduate school work and projects in the classroom.

  1. Thanks for the mention! It’s inspiring to be engaged with such a thoughtful community of writers/thinkers/photographers, and I’m excited to see what else I will discover in the coming weeks and months.

  2. Paul,

    I love your story on digital storytelling recently on PBS.org and also your article on goal setting. I also been very involved for the last five years with helping students with digital storytelling. I’m a former special ed teacher and developed a program called Tel.A.Vision, http://www.telavision.tv. It is a curriculum, website and software to help youth create vision videos of their future as though everything they want in their life has already happened. It is had a profound effect on the students around the country that have completed these videos. If you’re interested please visit my website and if you’d like a free trial let me know.
    Best wishes

  5. Hey Paul — I found your blog through Broadside’s post today. I went to law school in Louisville and try to get back to visit every chance I can from here in West Virginia. Looking forward to your posts!

  7. Hi, Paul! I randomly found your post and thought about giving you a big like for the picture with the chicken on your shoulder. You have nice hobbies (especially cooking) and an interesting job. Keep up the good work! Love, Anny Moore.
