In this class, kids will learn how to write/tell creative stories about a topic of their choosing! I recently asked this question on Facebook: What is your kid's biggest struggle when it comes to writing?

I am an experienced writer, speaker, reader, and teacher. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English with an emphasis in Writing from Azusa Pacific University. Almost immediately after graduation, while working under a New York Times Bestselling Author as a Proofreader, I furthered my education by earning a Certificate in Proofreading from the Editorial Freelance Association. I have poetry, fiction, and non-fiction pieces published in a variety of literary magazines such as Barren Magazine, The Sun, and The Wales Haiku Journal. I've written a myriad of Spoken Word pieces and shared them at weddings, churches, and coffee shops. I've won awards in Impromptu Speaking and Speech Writing. I see writing, not as a tedious task, but as a pathway for understanding and connection with one another. I am well experienced in both in person and remote teaching. I have worked with families in high stress settings for several years. I've taught Hands On English Classes and Trauma Informed Writing Workshops in refugee communities from California to Italy. I've volunteered in classrooms with differently abled students.
Students will be challenged to write a story and share their writing with someone in their family.
Students should come to class with a notebook and a writing utensil.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will give encouraging feedback after the learner shares their story.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
