Our Goals

At Buddinwriters, we seek to:

Buddinwriters Academy is dedicated to boosting teacher effectiveness and fostering students’ reading, thinking, and writing skills. Our goal is to reduce the educational achievement gap between schools in underprivileged areas and those in more advanced learning environments.

As an educational consulting firm, our focus is to enhance schools through hands-on professional development and individual coaching, aimed at increasing teacher effectiveness. We employ proven, research-driven methods and tools to advance literacy and communication skills in students from kindergarten through 12th grade.

  • At Buddinwiters Academy, we use the Writing to Respond (WTR) Process across schools to enhance reading, writing, and overall academic achievement among all student groups. Additionally, our ACE IT model guides schools in using data effectively, fostering collaborative and evaluative practices, to instill habits that lead to success.

Testimonials: Focusing on Student Success

Awesome Virtual Sessions
During the peak of the pandemic we struggled with means for keeping our teachers motivated. I reached out to Dr. Watts at Buddinwriters Academy and I am glad we did. She conducted interactive virtual sessions with our team of 26 cross-curricular educators on how to teach writing to our students in remote learning. We knew we were on point when our American Sign Language (ASL) teacher realized that she could utilize WTR to teach her students how to think as writers even though they communicated differently. Our educators expressed enthusiasm and continue to request follow-up sessions.
After School Program Director
Virtual Support
After we solicited Dr. Watts as our virtual trainer on "How to Prepare the Elementary Child for Writing", we were concerned about keeping our teachers motivated to teach the process in non-Language Arts classes. We knew we could not afford the additional coaching and support sessions Buddinwriters offered, but we wanted to ensure that all new teachers who entered our building knew how to utilize WTR process and its resources. We reached out to Dr. Watts and she provided videos that outlined the use of each significant resource. Buddinwriters is truly concerned about students in disadvantaged settings and we are thankful.
Head of School
in a Disadvantaged Setting
My students have utilized Dr. Watts’ simplified method RID PWD ( Read, Identify, Determine, Plan, Write, Double check) of tackling test prompts. My regular students were just as effective as my advanced students in deciphering test prompts. It was amazing to see all my students experience the same level of success.
