Some inspiration to keep you going this Tuesday


When I was at Borders yesterday, I found myself sucked into buying a tiny book by Mitchell Uscher, which is a collection of quotes about teachers and teaching. I just wanted to share a few of the quotes that are inside it, which inspired me this morning.

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” –Margaret Mead
“What you give of yourself is priceless.” –Oprah Winfrey
“Education is the most powerful tool you can have.” –Gene Simmons
“Treat a person as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat him as he could be, and he will become what he should be.” –Jimmy Johnson

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).
