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. Students return tomorrow. I have a new principal. I am leading the ela dept. CC roll out with strange CC-ish assessments this year in last year’s format with this year’s standards. The bar is raised, and here are my thoughts: Send me your positive thoughts and prayers and such…I am stressed. After 15 years, I still can’t fall asleep before the first day of school. Sigh…


    • @Carol: I was unable to leave a comment on your blog post so I figured I’d leave it here. What I wanted to say was:
      It sounds like working with service dogs might be a great thing for you to try out next year once the boys are gone. It sounds like something you’d really love.


  2. Sorry Betsy and Amy but my comments disappeared on your blogs. Could it be my new computer or Apple’s new Lion? Anyway… Betsy, I loved your chalk poem even if it’s DROUGHT and Amy, I share your son’s love of learning at my Apple store. BRAVO!
