I’m excited to share my interview at Two Writing Teachers: “An Interview with Educator and Author Chris Lehman.”
I was interviewed by TWTs’ Beth Moore, my friend, former colleague at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, and TWT regular contributor.
We talked my passion-ish for writing and reading, tips for helping reluctant student writers, standards, heroes and so much more. It was a blast to do and I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed having it!
I am looking forward to a week of fun events as we roll into December. (I’m also sharing with you some super-new west coast dates coming up in Spring, you’re the first to know!)
