Hey there! We're Caitlin and Jessica. Middle School ELA teachers on a mission to make your life easier and your students' writing stronger. Simple as that.
We met while teaching together at a school in Los Angeles, only to find out that we were both from the Bay Area, we both went to the same college, our birthdays are two days apart, and we are essentially the same person (just ask our students). We are so similar that our students (and husbands) couldn’t tell the difference in our voices. Weird? Yes. A meant-to-be friendship? You bet.
We were inspired to create EB Academics because we both love to teach writing and wanted to bring that love to other teachers just like you. We know teaching writing can be a daunting and time-consuming challenge for many, so our #1 goal has become making your life easier as a writing teacher. Everything we create, write, or share is always done with intention and this goal in mind. And this online community we’ve built? Yea, it focuses specifically on Middle School English Language Arts … we thought you’d appreciate that.
Want to know what makes our day? Hearing from teachers (just like you) that our resources or blog posts have saved them time and improved their students’ writing drastically. Really. As corny as it sounds, we have both always wanted to be ELA coaches, and this incredible online forum allows us to do just that.
Excited to get in on the action and learn more about these time-saving resources we’re talking about? We thought so …
… feel free to download your FREE 12-page Writing Guide that we put together just for you. Seriously, you’ll be amazed (and shocked) by what this little 12-page resource is going to do for you in your classroom. Just click here to get in on the action.
Enjoy. And we mean that. Truly enjoy teaching writing from here on out because we’ve got you covered.
