Empowering the Voices of Ten Girls from East Harlem

I’ve had a few inquiries (personally and online) about how I went about publishing DEAL WITH IT! Powerful Words from Smart, Young Women with my former students. Well, I wrote a proposal on, which got funded by a very generous author (whose name I cannot reveal). That being said, if you’re so inclined to try something like this out, I encourage you to read the prologue of DEAL WITH IT first, since the road to getting these girls published was a long one! You’ve GOT to have the right group of kids to do something like this with. If you think you have some really dedicated writers, then go for it! (LMK if you need any advice. I’m happy to help, tell you about our experience, etc.)

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
