I’m a technology-loving, high school English teacher. And my passion is to help students rediscover a love of reading through authentic, real-world tasks. Despite 20+ years in the classroom, I’m excited about all of the learning that awaits me.
In many ways, teachers are coaches. And because I’ve been with the franchise twenty-five seasons (even though I’m only 25 😬), I’ve learned a thing or two along the way. Here’s what I’ve learned about writing instruction.
Before I can ask certain things from my students, I need to make some promises of my own. The first assignment every year begins with a pledge I share with my students, and then they publish their own list of commitments to me.
