She demonstrates authentic strategies that she has used directly with students in classroom settings almost daily throughout her years of consulting. Laura knows what works with struggling readers and writers because of her commitment to ‘always remain a teacher.’”

“Laura Robb brings to all her work the insights of the master teacher, one who has spent forty-three years in the classroom studying what works and why. Her great gift is that she shares this instructional wisdom with the rest of us through her books, each one written to help teachers improve their ability to help their students do the same.”

“When I met Laura Robb four years ago I was impressed by her genuine student-centered attitude and the magnitude of her knowledge base. I knew that her research and writings would provide the foundation for the K-12 strategic reading initiative in my district. Laura has been both a mentor and inspiration to my team in the design and implementation of a well-grounded literacy plan and ongoing professional development. Countless educators have read and reflected upon Laura’s professional texts, such as Teaching Reading in Middle School, Teaching Reading in Social Studies, Science, and Math, and Nonfiction Writing From the Inside Out, and filled their Teachers as Learners Journals with introspective thoughts about sound teaching practices found in the pages of her works. As we continue on our journey, we credit Laura for her wisdom and guidance in fostering positive changes in teaching that have resulted in measurable improvement in student achievement in language arts. She is truly an outstanding educator in the field of literacy who breathes life into the teaching of reading and writing.
