Jaclyn Pryzbylkowski, Voorhees (NJ) Middle School Language Arts Writing Teacher How Writing Instruction Can Help Children Achieve Their Potential Jaclyn Pryzbylkowski is a Language Arts teacher at the Voorhees (NJ) Middle School. Here she employs many important ideas about two often-maligned subjects that can help children achieve their potential: literature and writing. As she once wrote: “Ever since I received the English award in eighth grade… I realized my love for literature and all its fascinating dynamics…. Without literature, we would not be where we are as humans…. It opens our minds…. During my college experience … I made sure I was completely positive about my career choice. I wanted to be self-fulfilled, do something every day I loved, and touch someone’s life — teaching was the perfect profession to make these dreams a reality.” In her classroom students grow as writers. More importantly, they leave with an appreciation and liking for writing. Students are no longer students in her classroom — they are authors who write to be read. They’re beginning to achieve their potential.
