Northwest ISD’s curriculum team has selected the district’s elementary Writers of the Month for February 2020, honoring three students for their academic capabilities.

This month’s honorees include Liberty Austin from Curtis Elementary SchoolChloe Jones from Nance Elementary School and Kaitlyn Rodriguez from Schluter Elementary School. Each writer selected his or her favorite recent work to highlight for the award.

Liberty recently wrote a history story about the Boston Tea Party. She said she likes to write mini stories that make her writing more interesting. Chloe recently wrote about a medical emergency. She said she likes to write personal narratives because it allows her to share about herself. Kaitlyn recently wrote about her dog, Bella, and the excitement that followed. She said she likes to read and use words she’s learned in her own writing.

The district’s literacy coaches work with a group of campus teachers and administrators to select students who show exemplary writing performance or tremendous growth as writers. After students are chosen, each is asked to select his or her favorite work of writing and explain why that work was chosen.

Students are recognized by district educators as well as through the Northwest ISD English Language Arts program with a certificate of achievement.
