Marjorie Martinelli

Marjorie leads the art and design team at The Reading & Writing Project at Mossflower. Her gorgeous anchor charts and one-day charts grace the walls of classrooms around the world and travel home nightly with students in their writing folders. Her art helps make complex and abstract concepts accessible for all kids. She is the lead artist for the Units of Study in Reading, Writing, and Phonics series, and she’s played an especially significant role in developing tools and resources for Writing Pathways.

Marjorie has extensive experience as a staff developer, senior research associate, and co-director of Reading Rescue at the Reading & Writing Project. In those roles, she has led numerous leadership groups and presented at many national and international educational conferences. Marjorie is a co-author of titles in the Units of Study in Writing Series for K-2 and for 3-5. In addition, Marjorie is co-author of Smarter Charts and Smarter Charts for Math, Science, and Social Studies, two books which teach teachers what they need to know about creating their own charts for their classrooms. Prior to her work as a staff developer, Marjorie was a New York City public school teacher, a teacher-researcher, and an adjunct professor at Bank Street College of Education. She has a MA in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from New York University, and she is the author of two Brain Quest Math decks for first and second grade.
