What Teachers Are Saying
Kala Aguado, 6th Grade ELA and Social Studies
This past Friday, the Assistant Superintendents, Cabinet, and the entire school board visited my room. It was overwhelming in number, but I was so proud of my kids. The visitors were seriously blown away by the written work samples posted on the walls, the EBW reminders and notes for students and more importantly what my kiddos could articulate! My students felt so empowered!
Thank you Caitlin Mitchell and Jessica Cannata! I seriously wanted to cry. My kids felt confident and good about themselves. I high-fived every student and expressed my pride! Great teacher moment! Thank you again!
6th-8th Grade Reading & English Teacher
The writing program changed my entire teaching life. So easy to implement, it makes sense, and even the kids said that they liked how it was broken down during their end-of-the-year reflections!
When kids say they ENJOY how writing was approached, you KNOW it's a good program! I've had kids come to me saying they wish I was their teacher for how I teach writing!
I first started teaching writing with your EBW format three years ago to my (then) 7th grade class. They are now in high school and I stay in touch with a few of them. Today several of them shared that they have needed and used the EBW format for writing in their high school ELA classes for informational, RTL, and argumentative writing, even sharing their original EBW notes from my class with each other (they've gone to different high schools, both public and private), as they continue to need and use EBW.
They are having great success in high school with this format which warms this teacher's heart!
Thank you so much for the EB Academics club, EBW program, and creative standards-based content which has significantly contributed to the success of my students!
