Hello, I’m Eve. I’m a word nerd from Massachusetts. I teach 5th grade and this past year had the greatest of pleasures introducing poetry to my students. We read it, we wrote it, we shared it, we discovered it, and they finally, much to my great joy, both girls and boys alike, fell in love with the magic of beautiful words! They are always looking for words that inspire them, just like their teacher!
The weekend of the marathon is also the last weekend before school lets out for the summer, so I will be closing out grades and working on things that will need to be done by next Monday morning in addition to working my second job. But I I could not resist the idea of writing 24 poems!
I look forward to meeting all of you and reading the words that make each of you unique!
