Thank you for showing me how to write more and use detail. Also for showing me how to be creative. It was so fun working with you.

Grade 5 Student at Dixon Grove Public School

Story Quest's impact on student writing has positively changed their attitudes. Students once saw writing as a task and now see it as an opportunity for their voices to be heard. I would highly recommend Charlotte to be a part of a class writing process!
