Professional Development

Teaching Nonfiction Revision (Heinemann, 2017)

In addition to writing, visiting schools, and conducting student writing workshops, for the past several years, I have been polishing professional development workshops for teachers and other educators. These workshops range in length from an hour to all day, and focus on developing teachers’ own writing knowledge and skills so that they may better help their students. To discuss your professional development needs and how I might meet them, please contact me by phone (406)721-2783 or email,
