Teacher Testimonials

“It’s a really great website for engaging students in writing as well as communicating ideas and inspirations.”
– Alex Baxfield, Digital Literacy Coach, Alice Brown Elementary

“I just wanted to let you know my class has turned into writing fanatics since being introduced to this program three days ago. They are writing at home, during free time and groaning when I give them the five minute warning that we need to wrap it up.”
– Kim McCoy-Parker, Fifth Grade Teacher, Four Mile Elementary

“Your website has totally changed how my students approach the writing process, and it has given me a unique way to give them feedback and help them grow as writers. I was introduced to Write About through Global Read Aloud, but we are going to continue to use the website for all of our units this school year.”
– Bianca Anderson, Middle School English, Greenhill School

“My students love it and they have found an authentic audience for their writing!”
– Rosy Burke, 5th Grade Teacher

“Write About has changed the way my students write. Such a powerful and important platform.”
