That writing lady is here!

9 Feb

Welcome to That Writing Lady, a blog about teaching writing in urban public schools.

I love writing. I love it so much–and for so many reasons–that I have dedicated my adult life to spreading the gospel of creative writing as the executive director of Deep, a nonprofit that runs free writing workshops for inner city public school students.  (Hence the blog name: I frequently find myself in the soup aisle–Ramen noodles being another secret passion of mine–only to be interrupted by a kid I’ve never met before squinting at me, head cocked to the side, asking, “Hey–are you that writing lady?”)

This blog is the story of my journey as a writing teacher and a record of all the helpful hints and tricks my colleagues and I have accumulated to help make your classroom a haven for creativity and learning.

This blog is intended to be practical and useful (and, at times, a little irreverent). Please share your own experiences and ideas in the comments section. I look forward to hearing from you!
