I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade 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).

  1. I’m not sure how to invite all of my new “friends” from the Slice project, but I run an ongoing feature called Day in a Sentence, and I invite you all to participate.
    (See archives of what we have done:

    It works like this:
    You think about your week or a day in your week
    You boil it down into a single sentence
    You share.

    This week, a friend from Australia is hosting (we try to move the feature around from blog to blog). She is hoping folks will use VoiceThread but you can always just use the comment section of the blog post.

    So, I warmly invite any readers here to join us:

    Thanks for extending my connections even further.


  2. Hi Stacey. I work with Ruth and teach 5th grade. We are going to be doing some persuasive writing and Ruth thought you might be a good one to get some resources for teaching this unit. Could you email me at so we can be in touch and I can maybe pick your brain a little? Thanks and know that I truly enjoy reading your blog. I use several of your ideas!
