“Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing opportunity to use WriteSteps this past year. Not only did I see huge growth in my students’ writing, I feel that I blossomed as a writing teacher for the first time in my career that started in 1984…that’s saying something! My favorite thing about using WriteSteps was how confident my students became. I could ask them to write anything, and the majority happily complied. Overall, this program was quite a highlight in my classroom this year.”
