About the Author
Lesley Roessing has spent twenty years teachingeighth-grade language arts and humanities in suburban Philadelphia. Prior to discovering her interest in teaching middle school students, she taught high school English. Over the past six years, she published articles in NCTE’s English Journal and Voices from the Middle; The Quarterly, a NWP publication; and NMSA’s Middle School Journal and Middle Ground. In addition, Roessing has presented her articles and ideas widely in a variety of formats, from lecturing at annual conferences of teachers’ associations to teaching workshops for local organizations and schools. In 2002, Roessing became a writing teacher-consultant and in 2004 a literature teacher-consultant for the Pennsylvania Writing & Literature Project, where she began her metamorphosis from a literature teacher into a reading teacher who opens adolescents’ eyes to the wonder of literature and from a composition teacher to a writer who shares the gift of writing with her students, both for its own value and to enhance their reading experiences.
