Michelle Knight, Teacher, Alcott Elementary

My kids absolutely loved it! They were so excited to see that someone thought their writing had enough merit to publish it, and they got a kick out of having others read their work. What tickled me most was the encouragement they gave each other when they read their peers’ writing. I heard kids tell each other, “I really like what you wrote!” It’s great to know that the children have an authentic audience for their writing, and that they know they are not just writing for a teacher. I’m glad our students participate in StudentsXpress.
