Program Creator, The Write Connection™
CSU San Marcos
Teaching Credential (1991)
  • As a sixth grade teacher for predominantly Hispanic students, created a rubric writing program to teach her students how to master all stages of the writing process.
  • Founded The Write Connection™, an educational writing program for elementary students implemented by hundreds of schools throughout California and Texas. Incorporating state standards and core curriculum skills, the program is proven effective in improving test scores and student writing proficiency.
  • The Write Connection™ has been largely instrumental in increasing the Academic Performance Index (API) scores in many of the elementary schools in Compton, CA. Several campus scores haven risen more than 200 points, reaching an API score in the mid to high 800s.
  • One of only 25 credential students to participate in the first commencement ceremony for California State University, San Marcos.
