When I graduated from the credential program, I was clueless about how to teach writing to my students. It was not taught in my classes. However, my Master Teacher showed me some ways, but I just watched and that was it, they sent me on my way.
I wanted to do what my Master Teacher had taught me, but she definitely didn’t set me up for success and I didn’t have my own classroom which made it hard to master those skills. It’s a hard concept to learn when you haven’t seen the start to the finish or haven’t been taught the concepts.
I learned how to teach writing through the teachers that I watched, research and I figured a lot out on my own. I wasted a lot of time and my student’s time learning how to teach writing. It’s my favorite subject so I was determined to get it down.
I have created this Professional Development Course and video series for that purpose, to give you a safe and easy place to learn, practice, and get your questions answered.
In this video series, there are 7 modules, plus a bunch of PDFs to use with your class!
I have set it up so that you will learn all about the Writer’s Workshop Model of teaching and how to fit writing into your daily lesson plan. Then I go through each type of writing and teach you how to teach it. I also help you teach your students how to manage editing in the classroom with the Writer’s Workshop model.
It will be a time of clarification and will take a huge load off of teaching writing!

Video Preview of the Program
Check out this video preview that I made for Module 7. It will give you an idea on what to expect.
In this course, you will also get access to a closed Facebook group. In this group, you can ask questions, get more advice, you will get access to freebies, and hear about discounts.
This past year my group of 2nd-grade students were post-pandemic and they were low, as were many students nationwide. They were by far the lowest group of 2nd graders that I have had. But, this is why I love my Writing Program, because no matter what level they come into my classroom, it is differentiated enough to where I can teach right where they are at.
Do you need PD credits?
I know the schools that I have worked for will send us to Professional Development classes and some are good and some are a waste of time. Some are on Saturday morning or Friday after teaching and that’s the last thing I want to do on my weekend off is attend a Professional Development class.
I love that this is PD that you can do on your own time. You can listen to these videos with a cup of coffee in one hand and stay in your PJs., or while you are getting ready in the morning (HINT: That’s when I listen to my PD). Also, if you need to re-listen, you have lifetime access. I love that about online PD programs, I will go back and listen to some multiple times. When I attend in person, I never take good enough notes and always wish I could re-listen.
Why do I need this?
- Are your students bored with writing?
- Do they groan when you mention it is writing time?
- Do you lack creativity for your writing block?
- Are you not sure how to fit in writing to your day? Writing should be done daily.
- Are your students struggling to even write one sentence let alone 4 by the end of 1st grade?
- Do you have a lot of EL students?
- Does your curriculum include a writing component or are you expected to just fit it in?
- Do you even have a writing curriculum? My school doesn’t!
- Are you a new teacher who is nervous about the start of the year and don’t even know where to begin?
I have been there for all of these? This program was created just for you.
