I am a teacher in Tooele Utah just outside Salt Lake city. I have been teaching for 16 years. I love teaching and I enjoy spending time with my 5 children and my wonderful husband. We enjoy long summer trips and camping. I am an avid science fiction buff.

In homeroom class we are working on increasing our writing skills. We love writer's workshop! Everyday your students are participating in writing for an additional 30 minutes two days a week on a topic of their choosing. This fosters a love of writing. They participate in Prewriting, Drafting, Revising, Editing, Conferencing, and then Publishing. We love using the laptops. We also present our pieces during Author's Chair time. Then we positively critique each other's writing using the 6 writing traits!
Organization, Word Choice, Voice, Sentence Fluency and Conventions.
