Whether you are a teacher trying to help ALL your students navigate the writing process, a parent struggling at home to help their child with distance learning or a student that just got a massive essay in class, this channel is for you! I walk you through the entire writing process from start to finish. In this channel, you will find research-based, classroom-tested, student approved literacy skills for equitable education! My hope is that these videos will help you as you write in school and at home. I am a classroom teacher myself, so I know how hard teaching writing is. I use all these videos in my own classroom to support and differentiate the learning for ALL my students. I have found these videos extremely helpful for ALL students especially English Language Learners. I also provide free classroom materials to help you teach writing to ALL your kids.

For the past seven years, I have taught at a Charter school in San Diego that serves a 60% refugee and immigrant population. I have had the opportunity to teach everything from Honors Social Science subjects, Android app development, remedial literacy and AVID to running an after school robotics and basketball program, operate as testing coordinator, and serve on our school’s leadership team. I recently finished my M.S.E in Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in Reading Education at Kansas University.
