Exciting News

At the risk of sounding like a bragging parent, I had to share this news with my OWP community. My students participated in the Letters to the Next President project through the NWP this fall. We received word a few days ago that one of my student's letters has been selected for publication through the National Writing Project and the College Board’s National Commission on Writing. We're not exactly sure how or when it will be published, but Nick and I were both excited. Here's the link to his letter, if you'd like to check it out. The topic is pretty interesting.

Thanks, OWP! If not for the OWP, we wouldn't have even participated in this project.

Isn't it amazing the doors that NWP, and specifically our OWP, can open for teachers? I am so proud of your students for participating, and I am very excited for the one who was chosen! What an authentic audience for their writing and to allow their voices to be heard. You are such a great teacher! Hope you are getting some much deserved rest over the holiday break and enjoying time with family. See you soon! Keep up the great work with your students!

What a powerful, simple, and beautiful message...and how exciting that this was one of the messages chosen to have a larger audience.
