Lee Heffernan

Lee Heffernan wants “my students to try something new, express their opinions, and feel respected every day.” The classroom press model in Back and Forth supports that goal by giving her “Thirdlanders” authentic experiences in writing and publishing. Lee has honed this and many other classroom ideas while working in elementary schools for more than 30 years. She has presented aspects of her practice at NCTE and is the author of Critical Literacy and Writer’s Workshop. Learn alongside her at or on twitter @lee_heffernan.
