writing workshop

Congratulations Penny Kittle!

As I was finding links for the last post, I came across this announcement on Heinemann’s website:

Congratulations to Penny Kittle! She has won the 2009 NCTE’s James N. Britton Award for Write Beside Them. Penny will receive the Britton Award on November 20th at NCTE’s annual conference in Philadelphia.

Here’s wishing Penny the best of luck as she prepares her acceptance speech and a public THANK YOU for all she has done for our profession.  Like many others, I am the educator I am because of her influence. 

Congratulations Penny!
