Description

Class Experience

My undergraduate degree was in Secondary English Education and during that time I designed a poetry unit as a culminating project.  Since then, I’ve taught English in various capacities over the past 25 years, and I’ve been a homeschool mom for the past 14 years.  Poetry continues to be a special interest of mine, and I enjoy coming alongside students to help them creatively express themselves using this medium.

This poem deals with themes of justice and unity in America.  Please note that the focus of this class is on the poem itself; we will not be discussing, nor debating, politically or socially controversial topics.
