Teacher PD

I have a special heart for teachers because when I was a classroom teacher, I felt underprepared to teach writing (even with good curriculum). It wasn't until I began taking writing courses I learned to really appreciate that the writing process doesn't change much for third graders or professional writers. 

I teach virtually and in-person.
