We're here to support Montana educators.
Writing Coaches of Montana is proud to partner with educators in public schools across Missoula, Ravalli, and Flathead Counties and hopes to expand across the state soon.
Our program aids educators in helping students achieve Montana literacy content standards through conferencing individually with students on assignments.
Coaches not only support students' literacy, but they also build a network of local public education advocates--an important piece for any administrator to consider.
If you're a teacher or administrator interested in working with our coaches, please contact Executive Director, Cassie Sheets, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"I have been raving about yesterday. Hearing the conversations that were happening between my writers and the coaches made my heart happy. The kids were so nervous to begin with, and when I checked in with them, they loved it. They said it was very beneficial."
Kelliann Blackburn, 9th grade ELA, Whitefish High School
"Thank you so much for this experience with the writing coaches. I've graded a few of the projects, and I can see the influence of the sessions!"
Nancy Thibo, 10th grade ELA, Big Sky High School
"Not only did productivity increase, but more important, your coaches personalized the writing process--the students were writing for their coaches!"
