As a language arts teacher with over ten years of experience in the classroom, I love engaging and inspiring students through hands-on, standards-aligned activities. Poetry provides a wonderful vehicle to make inferences, determine themes, and cite textual evidence in complex, yet manageable texts. Through my interactive programs, teachers and students gain a new appreciation for the richness of words and learn specific poetry writing strategies. I offer a variety of formats for my school visits, including assemblies, classroom visits, student writing workshops, and teacher workshops. My programs can be customized to any age of students from K-8. I am happy to tailor a presentation to meet your needs.
