My name is Katelynn Giordano, hailing from the suburbs of Chicago. Those of you from Illinois might recognize the last name, but unfortunately there’s no relation to the pizza! I’m a sixth grade language arts teacher, wife, coffee enthusiast, and cat mom. I have a passion for motivating my students to love reading and inspiring them to find their voices through writing. I am constantly trying to better my teaching practice, and I write this blog to do what all teachers do best– share resources and thoughts on education. A fun side effect has been my improved writing instruction and my newfound ability to relate to my students when they are writing.
