Welcome to Writers in the Schools (WITS)! We are excited to have entered the blogosphere; we have lots to tell you! Each week one of our fabulous writers-in-residence will tell you a story of their time in the classroom. They will muse on their students, share lessons, and showcase the amazing writing their students have produced. They will tell us about the challenges and blessings of the important work they do. In addition, WITS Program Manager WITS Jeanine Walker and I will keep you up to date on good news, opportunities for students, and items of interest.
At WITS we believe that, by working as a professional writer, each writer-in-residence has a unique and special background for teaching. This results in one-of-a-kind lessons, experiences, and writing. We are excited to have a place to showcase this great variety and we hope you are, too!
