One of the most exciting experiences as a writing teacher is seeing my students excel in their writing endeavors far beyond my classes. Morgan-McKay Hoppman distinguished herself early in Level 1 by her steady, disciplined practice of writing, and continued the same habit through all three levels. Now a first semester freshman in college, she is already working in the writing lab! MM constantly writes; she has completed eight novels, mainly for her siblings’ enjoyment. She has also been published online several times on therebelution.com, a website that encourages teens to rebel against the low expectations of society and to use the teen years as “the launching pad of life.”
