A Loss in the Writing Community

David Price, a fifth grade teacher with a passion for the teaching of writing, passed away this past week. I heard the news via an e-mail from the TCRWP. I was shocked since I had just passed David in the halls at T.C. last month.

I had the pleasure of spending a week sitting across from David during the Summer of 2007 when we were both enrolled at the TCRWP Reading Institute (in an advanced section with Kylene Beers). His enthusiasm for the teaching of literacy was both admirable and infectious. Incoming classes of children at his school in Pennsylvania will be at a loss for they will not have the opportunity to be inspired this great teacher.
