Students, thanks for sharing your lives with me through poetry!
I’ve been planning this year’s school poetry workshops. On a recent phone call with a teacher I’ve worked with for few years, she shared some positive feedback that I had to write down to take in.
She said, “They’re hearing you. It’s working. You really made an impact on how they see themselves. The students who you’ve worked with have been really touched to the core.”
That makes the early mornings so worthwhile. This is me yesterday at 7:30am, ready to teach poetry to Grades 6, 7 & 8 students!
