❌ Dislike. If anything has to be cut from the schedule, writing is the first thing to go.
❌ Defeat. No matter what you try, your students just dread writing time.

❌ Stress. There are just too many standards to teach, and it's difficult to fit it all in.

Hey! I'm Megan!
I can't wait to cheer you on as your students go from, "Do we haaaave to?!" to "Whyyyyy do we have to stop?!" Sounds like a dream, right? Well, I am here to tell you that dreams do come true!
Teaching writing is hard. It is even harder when the feelings connected to it are the opposite of love, excitement, and joy. From teaching 2nd grade to 4th grade, the emotion to describe writing was pretty unanimous amongst the class: boring.
I knew I had to do something.
My love and passion for teaching writing grew tremendously as I designed, planned, and prepped SIMPLE writing activities that would support and entice my writers in a way I never really knew was possible.
This membership was created to be a specific place where writing teachers, like you, can come to gain confidence, support, and ideas! Writing can be made simple.

Incredible! Megan's expertise in writing shows through the well-crafted resources she creates! They are easy for kids to use independently. My students love writing now and are actually asking to write! I am thankful and so grateful!
Seeing students' hands raise to share their writing is something I am not used to seeing. Thank you for creating such student-centered resources. My ESL students are gaining confidence in writing and in speaking.
