Shawna Coppola is an expert in child and young-adult literacy, including in practices that support a diversity of writing types and young writers. An educator for almost two decades, Shawna has worked both as a middle school language arts teacher (6-8) as well as a literacy specialist/coach (K-6). For the majority of that time, she has taught in multiage classrooms and is effective at engaging learners of all ages in reading, writing, speaking, viewing, and listening experiences. As someone who believes in neurodiversity, she is a fierce advocate for all students–in particular, for those who may not fit the profile of a “typical” learner. In addition to working with students, Shawna has led courses and workshops for educators through the University of New Hampshire’s NH Literacy Institutes as well as their Professional Development and Training program. Shawna is the author of Renew! Become a Better-and More Authentic–Writing Teacher as well as a number of pieces that have been featured in Literacy Today, The Reading Teacher, Education Week, The Nerdy Book Club blog, and others.
