"It's been very obvious how much work you've put into sharing your wisdom and expertise with others.  I'm very impressed."
Leasa Codner, M.Ed. NBCT, Kindergarten Teacher

I want to thank you so much for your Start to Write program. I really didn't enjoy Writer’s Workshop my first year of using it. Since I began trying your approach, I've grown to like it so much more. I've even begun to innovate and had great success. So thanks so much!
Adrienne Hugo, Teacher

"Your kindergarten workshop guide is probably the most user-friendly example of what workshop should look like than any other I've seen."
Debi Passadori, Teacher

"Thank you so much for such a succinct document on kid writing.  I really enjoy your website and have found such wonderful information and helpful tips to include in my kindergarten classroom." 
Maggie Pruitt, Teacher, Cleveland, GA

I have been reading your writing books and I have to say I LOVE them! Thank you for putting this together. I have found Writer's Workshop to be very stressful trying to implement it the way the books say it needs to be done. You hit the nail on the head and I love knowing that I am not alone with the "real world Writer's Workshop".  
Barb Moore, Teacher
