Owner & Instructor, The Writer’s Workshop for Kids
2009-2012, Online beginning 2020!
Designed and conducted weekly creative and essay writing classes for kids in grades 3-6 in Southern CA. Through theme-based workshops—from pirates and portals to ancient Egypt and unbirthday parties—we shared fun warm-up activities, graphic organizers, and writing skills resources while having fun along the way!
Now, the writing workshops are going online! See you there! 🥳✏️
