Maureen Auman, MA

Maureen Auman, the author of Step Up to Writing, has provided staff development for elementary, middle, high school, and parent/family groups since 1987. She has taught the Step Up reading and writing strategies in graduate level courses since 1989. As a consultant, she has worked with teachers and administrators in Colorado and throughout the country. Her active, hands-on workshops and presentations have received rave reviews at local, state, and national conferences.

Strategies that have become a standard part of the Step Up to Writing program are practical strategies that Maureen used, learned, and developed as she worked with her own middle and high school students to prepare them for district and state assessments. She is excited to share her methods with other middle and high school teachers in all subject areas, but she also works regularly with elementary teachers and students.
