An educator with twenty-nine years of experience, Martha Templeton has taught writers workshop as a classroom teacher, led professional learning sessions at the local and state levels, and has worked as a school effectiveness and literacy specialist in both Georgia and Hawaii. She currently teaches writers workshop in a sixth grade classroom in Rome, Georgia, where her passion for writing and her belief in students are at the forefront of her work.
I am a firm believer in the workshop model and that empowering students to do the work of authors is the crux of our work as writing teachers. This demands a level of immersion in the process that goes beyond typical writing assignments and into the world real writers live - exploring topics, writing about our passions, seeking publication and honing our crafts together in a collaborative of learners. I firmly believe there is no more powerful way to teach or to learn this craft.
