“I consider the Central Washington Writing Project my professional home. Since my participation in the Summer Institute in 1992, I have worked alongside colleagues to polish our practice, celebrate our students, and share our learning and leadership across the region, state, nation, and world.”
-Susan Johnson, Cle Elum-Roslyn S.D. High School English, 2009 Washington State Teacher of the Year
"Most NWP teachers surveyed in May 2001 stated that the Writing Project helped them become more up-to-date on the latest research, more familiar with strategies to teach diverse students and more knowledgeable about helping students reach standards." (National Writing Project, In Brief, Spring 2002)
“I could take all of the lessons/units and tweak them to fit my students’ needs and have a year or more of lesson ideas and plans. It was confirming to me to see that no matter the grade level or the content or the genre, good writing is good writing.”
-Glenn Kessinger, Yakima S.D. Instructional Facilitator.
