Our Core Principles

“Beloved Community” can transform education and our world–and that is why we do this work.

Teachers and their students should use writing for learning, healing, taking action, and making art.

Teachers can shape and define their own professional development.

Professional development is ongoing throughout a teacher’s career.

Reflective writing about teaching is a powerful form of learning and communication for teachers.

Real classroom change happens over time and requires ongoing sharing and reflection on teaching practices.

Successful practicing teachers are the best teachers of other teachers.

Teachers who write are the best teachers of writing.
