Having attended Columbia University's summer writing intensive with Lucy Calkins and the Reading and Writing Project staff, I returned to my California public school classroom a significantly improved teacher of writing. I do not implement a rigid Calkins model. Rather, I incorporate Nancie Atwell's reading and writing workshop philosophy along with Vicki Spandel's six traits of writing philosophy. My students are loving English class, the parents are overjoyed, and administrators and school board members rejoice at the significant rise in test scores. However, the delight and excitement I see from students who request additional reading and writing time along with opportunities to share their books and writers' notebooks makes teaching the greatest job in the world.
