Teacher Consultants

The Western Pennsylvania Writing Project (WPWP) is not a one-time event for teachers. Educators who complete the Summer Institute for Teachers become teacher-consultants– or Fellows–of the site, and members of the National Writing Project, the national network to which we belong. Teacher-consultants enjoy opportunities to participate in ongoing Writing Project activities, including creative and professional writing retreats, professional development workshops and youth writing institutes.

WPWP Fellows become part of a powerful, loving learning community. WPWP folks are among the most engaged teacher leaders and administrators in the region. The site supports Fellows learning to lead  through inservice, inquiry groups, workshops, and writing opportunities. Whether you are a new or veteran Fellow, we want you to stay involved, to invite your colleagues to Writing Project events and to nominate exceptional educators for the Summer Institute for Teachers.
