Patty McGee is author of Feedback that Moves Writers Forward: How to Escape Correcting Mode to Transform Student Writing (Corwin 2017) and a national and international literacy consultant. She has worked near and far—in her own home town of Harrington Park and across the world in Abu Dhabi and many places in between.
Her passion and vision is to create learning environments where teachers and students discover their true potential and power through joyful inquiry, study, and collaboration. Her favorite moments are when groups of teachers are working with students together in the classroom. It is truly where the magic happens. She does her best literacy research by practicing on her two children, age 11 and 16 (little do they know).
Patty was honored to receive the Milken Educator Award in 2002.
