Are you ready to hear my favorite interview that I’ve done to date? I had the privilege of interviewing Lisa Collum, creator and CEO of Top Score Writing and let me just say, you do not want to miss this interview. Lisa is a true writing rockstar, but more importantly, she knows how to run a business like a CEO teacher!
15 years ago, Lisa Collum was working at a Title One school and became frustrated watching countless students fail or struggle with writing on standardized tests. There simply wasn't a curriculum available that focused on her real writing skills, which ultimately hurt the students and teachers. So Lisa studied the Common Core areas that students struggled with the most and developed a curriculum all on her own.
In less than a year, Lisa was able to turn her class around from nearly all failing to achieving a 100% pass rate. Lisa was able to do that with class after class, regardless of how much the students had struggled in the past. Soon, every teacher in the school was demanding Lisa's curriculum and Top Score Writing was born.
Top Score Writing has since grown to include full teacher curriculums for grades second through 12th as well as student workbooks, digital curriculum, scoring, and training. Today,Top Score Writing remains the only proven system that makes teaching writing easier, students learning faster, and is proven to achieve a 70% increase in writing test scores on average.
In this episode, you will learn:
- How Lisa started her business
- What Top Score Writing has grown into today
- Lisa’s favorite way to market her business and how you can do this too
- Lisa’s best piece of advice for teachers just getting started out in their business
