Poetry enlivens our lives and our learning. Poetry helps you integrate Social Emotional Learning into your teaching.


You can teach a poem a week on its own as spoken word and oral practice with rhythm and rhyme. You can teach a poem in more depth with more group discussion and writing follow-up activities. Bring the magic of poetry into your teaching. 


I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am available to come to your classroom to do a poetry workshop with your students. I am also available to offer professional development workshops with your faculty.


Please contact me for more information. 


Send me comments, thoughts, or poems!

I live in California, USA. Email me about poetry and language learning |
