Led by Caitlin & Jessica, founders of EB Academics, with 25 years of combined experience teaching middle school ELA.

This all started when we were both teaching ELA across the hall from one another at a school in L.A. One summer, we launched an ELA camp to help students get ahead for the summer, using the frameworks we’d developed for our own classrooms. It was a runaway success, and we realized that we wanted needed to share what we’d discovered with other teachers.

We'll see you at the workshop!
