Early 2000's Teacher Consultants

Kim Gutchewsky, GWP Early 2000's Liaison
kimI attended the GWP Summer Institute in 2000, and I found it the most inspiring professional development I'd experienced before or since.  The lessons we created were fun, challenging and reflective ways to encourage students' development as writers and thinkers. GWP continues to inspire as it promotes growth and collaboration to help teachers navigate best practices.

MuseAngie has been working with the Gateway Writing Project since she attended the Summer Institute in 2000.  “The Summer Institute transformed my teaching, and my understanding of writing and instruction continues to grow with each new GWP endeavor.  The power of this organization to impact education comes primarily from the passion and instructional brilliance of the teachers who continue to be involved with GWP.  Teachers who read together and write together can change the world together.”

Sioux Roslawski, Assistant Director - Teachers as Writers, GWP 2002 Liaison
roslawski“Gateway changed my life--forever... And I continue to evolve and flourish because of the GWP. I thought I knew about myself as a writer and about writing instruction, but when I took the Summer Institute back in 2000, the writing world--as I knew it--exploded (in a good way).”

Timothy Ryan, 2005 Teacher Consultant
ryanThe GWP fundamentally changed my approach to teaching and learning. It provided me with greater knowledge and access to writing theory and practice while at the same time affording me contact with educators from throughout the metropolitan area. I have since recommended this program to each teacher in my building and I am pleased to say at present McCluer North High School has six GWP graduates working in our ELA department.

Andria Benmuvhar, GWP 2005 Teacher Consultant
benmuvharIt has been over 12 years since I participated in my first GWP activity and it has been a part of my teaching ever since. I value student choice and independence and seek to set up my classroom in a way that students feel empowered by their learning.  GWP has remained a constant in my teaching practice and professional life. It has helped me take risks in my teaching and to trust that the process can be messy but rewarding.
