About the Presenter

Jennifer Seaton

After attending only one workshop, Jennifer Seaton quickly realized that Empowering Writers was the practical approach to teaching writing that she had desperately been searching for. Not only did the skills she learned transform her instruction and help create effective writers, but they also brought the fun back into the process! After 17 years in public education, Jennifer made the decision to join the EW team as a trainer so she could passionately share these impactful skills with others. She holds degrees in both Interdisciplinary Studies and Educational Administration, and currently serves as EW’s Director of Learning and Development. Living in North Central Texas with her husband and 2 teenage daughters, she enjoys spending time with her family at sporting events and stock shows!
