6th Graders Enjoy Guest Poetry Teacher

Caroline Pittman (mother of Lucy, 6th grade) was a guest speaker and teacher in English 6 Writing classes last week. Ms. Pittman studied writing under Natasha Tretheway, Emory professor and former US Poet Laureate 2012 & 2014. Girls enjoyed a powerful lesson in how to use their voices, memories, photographs, and experiences to construct a unique memory poem of their own.

This summer Ms. Pittman will continue to study poetry at The Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queen’s University, Belfast, Ireland. Thanks for visiting!
