I am an 8th grade Language Arts Teacher. In 2009, I took part in the National Writing Project  Summer Institute at Kent State. It was an unbelievable experience in which I grew as an overall person and writer, but especially a writing teacher! I wanted to created a place to write in a different genre than I ever have before- a blog. In this space, I hope to share ideas and hear from others to improve my teaching!

I have presented at numerous conferences on reading and writing topics. I also am a consultant to a local school who is trying to implement literature circles and improve their student’s comprehension,  reading and writing scores.

Please email me if you are interested in having me come to your school to present: annhagedorn@gmail.com


  1. Welcome to the blogging world. I love your blog! I had the same kind of experience when I participated in the Columbus Area Writing Project. It was life changing. I graduated from KSU (a long time ago)!
