You Make Me Look Forward to Teaching Poetry

I can honestly say that you make me look forward to teaching poetry to my students in the fall because I know we are sending them on to your contest. Also, I send my poems to you and I show my students how important it is that I am pushing myself to newer limits through the action. We all love the day we receive the books in the mail and see the names of the poems in black and white. My principal Mr. Kempton, values poetry a lot and has been reading our published poems over the announcements to share pride with the whole school!!!
