About Me

I am Sheri Edwards, a Geeky Gramma and middle school reading and writing teacher of thirty-one awesome years.

I started this blog in 2007 as place to write about my writing class lessons in a way that my students or others could adapt or use the lessons. It now continues in that role, after several iterations of purpose:




  • 2013, the blog transformed into a resource for things I have read, and perhaps a few lessons examples.


  • 2015, I revamp it again, as I am always learning, to consider writing ideas and cross-post with Ask What Else, another blog reflecting on teaching. It may even become a collaboration with other writing teachers.
  • 2016, return to a place to write about my writing class lessons in a way that my students or others could adapt or use the lessons.


As always, I welcome comments and suggestions that are helpful in their ideas.  This site is designed as a model for students, and online civil discourse (digital citizenship) is a priority.

Thanks for stopping by!
