    Meet Your Host

    Hi I’m DeeDee Wills. My years of experience teaching in elementary school environments and assisting teachers has allowed me to build the resources you need to help you better our classroom environment.

    I’ve been right where you are today, and I want to help you identify the best mentor texts to use in your writing instruction so you can establish a management plan that works.

    I have worked with thousands of teachers, and I can’t wait to share what WORKS in my next FREE webinar.

    There was a time when teaching writing was a struggle for me. I knew it was essential to my classroom’s success, but I was simply overwhelmed. It was time to hit the books and get back to basics, so that’s just what I did.

    After testing it out in my own classroom, I was able to tackle some of my biggest challenges, and along the way, I documented everything that worked.

    Using my knowledge of writing instruction and my experience in the classroom, I have helped teachers turn writer’s workshop into their favorite time of day. I’d love to do the same for you, and that’s why I’m hosting this webinar.
