Momentum in Teaching was founded in 2011 by three master classroom elementary school teachers from the Long Beach Unified School District in California.

With nearly 75 years of experience between them and their extended team, Momentum was conceived with the need of developing teachers’ literacy instruction practices through an approach that honors what they know, while building on with the responsive and highly effective model of reading and writing workshop.


Having experience in grade levels kindergarten through eighth, the team prides themselves in adapting their knowledge and vast experience in workshop to meet the needs of all faculty. Teachers leave training sessions with the skills, confidence and enthusiasm to immediately implement their new practice. They also understand how workshop fits into an extended balanced literacy block.
