Reading Time: 3 minutes Anne Walden teaches writing in the context of her work as Gifted Facilitator at Rousseau and McPhee Elementary Schools here in Lincoln, the city where she’s taught for over two decades. For over half that time, Anne has been a major contributor to the Nebraska Writing Project. She’s served as Co-Director and on the Advisory Board.
