Welcome!

Aloha! I’m Jorell, the teacher…

I’m a 6th grade writing teacher from Hawaii. My favorite part about my job is helping students who HATE writing. I’ve developed a series of methods that I use to help even the most reluctant writers begin to see themselves as powerful writers. After all, I used to be one of them.

If you have a struggling writer, if you ARE a struggling writer, there may be something on my website for you. If not, be sure to contact me. I’d love to hear from you.

Getting to Know You...

My website focuses on helping teachers and parents with struggling writers, as well as students who are struggling in their writing classes. Let me know a little about how I can help you.

Where to Begin...

This blog is aimed at sharing those things that I do in my classroom that help even the most reluctant writers find access to the joy, power, and freedom of the written world.

Planning lessons day-to-day means extra work every day. Unit planning is where it’s at. Sometimes it can be hard to ensure that your writing units have ALL the NECESSARY PARTS in it.
