Teachers Ralph A. Córdova, Karen Smith, and Christine Sanchez discuss how doing so helps instill excitement in students. Sanchez shares an entry from her writing journal about her mom.
Isoke Titilayo Nia of All Write Literary Consultants uses a plumbing analogy to emphasize the importance of teachers writing. Teacher Cristina Tijerina says writing practice helps her relate to her students’ struggles. Latosha Rowley uses a story about her fussy baby to teach a lesson on poetry.
Rowley cops to initially being uneasy with feedback from her students, but she says the process helped her grow. Teachers who feel uncomfortable about their writing can be the best mentors for children who share those insecurities. Silvia Edgerton teaches a lesson on writing nonfiction.
