Helping Teachers &
Their Students Grow as Writers
We believe teachers who write make the
best teachers of writers.
Because it is difficult to teach a craft you do not do yourself.
(How well would you learn to swim if your instructor had never been in the water?)
Because teacher-writers recognize that the writing process is highly individualized and not a linear progression that fits neatly onto a poster.
Because teacher-writers learn how fear and mindset affect writing and can recognize when they affect
Because when teachers write, they develop strategies for overcoming their fear and mindset roadblocks and can teach their student-writers how to do the same.
Because being a teacher-writer helps you plan your writing lessons and confer with your student-writers more effectively.
Because teacher-writers recognize the very important role writing for an authentic audience and being a part of a supportive writing community makes in the life of a writer.
