Amy K Conley

Senior English instructor in Fortuna, California

I teach senior English in Humboldt County, CA. I’m always looking for a way to have my students connect with the world that’s about to be theirs and wrote a book connecting motivation research to literacy, Teachers, Mindset, Motivation, and Mastery. Find it on Amazon! As a Redwood Writing Project teacher consultant, I also investigate writing practices with other writing professionals. As a trainer and instructor for California State University’s Expository Reading and Writing Curriculum, I get to coach students and adults to read and write critically.
