Writing is a way in which people may find the ability to express what they can't express through spoken words. Something happens when you put the pen to the paper, or even the fingers to the keyboard. As a fourth grade writing teacher I have realized that several children find true passion in writing when they are simply given the freedom to write. Many poets, comedians, and novelists have been prematurely discovered in my classroom. I am passionate about sharing ideas with parents and teachers about the children that they cherish. How do I get my child to love reading? How do I encourage my child to make friends? Is my child involved in too many activities, how do I prepare them for college? These are the conversations that I enjoy sharing about. Teaching and parenting isn't telling them what to do, but allowing them to learn through the experiences you provide them.
