NCTE ’14 — A Poetry Teacher’s Dream

NCTE ’14 — A Poetry Teacher’s Dream

Finding real people behind words:
Laura, my boys are writing!
Rebecca’s typewriter
Paul’s “possibilities of poetry”
Seats saved by Ramona
“Chalkabration” Betsy (It’s her)

Voices — J. Patrick Lewis and Georgia Ella Lyon
Miss Rumphius, is that you?
Eating blueberries and shrimp with the book fairy
Surprise!  Poems on pink tights
A secret peek at my roommate Irene’s new book
An exchange of smiles with Amy Ludwig VanDerwater —
(I have paused and I am in awe of you)

A “Poetry Friday Anthology” lunch
Listening to Jacqueline read
Poets guiding teachers in Texas
and teaching on a Navajo reservation
Yes, Georgia, “poetry is a doorway to literacy!”

    “Finding real people behind words.” I love how you captured the excitement of discovering so many real people at NCTE. I loved the poems on pink tights too! It was delightful to meet at the first timers breakfast and bookend the conference with shared sessions. Kim, I can’t wait to see more of your writing here.
