As teachers, we plunge into the school year packed full of ambition and enthusiasm. Our weeks soon become routine, peppered with papers to grade, meetings to attend, and plans to complete. Plopped into the mix are our families, hobbies, and the tasks of everyday life. Although professional growth is a pressing facet of our lives, it is often pushed aside.

Your passion for teaching, paired with a desire to hone the skills you possess, played a part in choosing IEWⓇ. Your time was invested in completing the training and practicums provided in IEW’s Teaching Writing: Structure and Style (TWSS) program. Your accomplishment should be proudly noted!
