Hello

Hello

Mucca Pazza… SOME still sitting in chairs!!! #BestShow2014 #LiveMusic

My students took FIRST PLACE in the Louder Than A Bomb competition yesterday! #TeachersPride #BestAyyamihaGift  

My kids are amazing! They’ve become outstanding writers. More importantly they all came into an understanding that racism, sexism, homelessness, lgbt issues, and issues of violence are not only worthy of talking about, but that thier voices matter AND (in thier words) “all humans deserve equal rights”!! 
#YouthCanMoveTheWorld

I went into this teaching contract thinking I had an opportunity to use art to plant some character building seeds that these kids would SOMEDAY reflect on, I never expected them to have such imediately viceral AhHa moments before my eyes!

Proof of the power educators have in shaping the character of youth. To the teachers who plant negative/bigoted/defeatist ideas in thier kids heads or worse the teachers that are so detached/neutral that they’re letting kids with trauma, home life, emotional, or academic issues slip through their  fingers…shame on you! Every single kid I teach is struggling with these things, I’m not teaching poetry I’m teaching kids how to cope, to talk, to let it out, TO HEAL…poetry is just a tool!

I am proud of my kids but for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I’m actually PROUD OF MYSELF. For not letting the stress get to me. For sticking to my guns. For asking kids hard questions. For trusting my instinct that even the kids that have behavioral issues have potential to be/do good. And for giving myself full permission to believe that I could make a difference.
