...that impacts on a person professionally and personally in a meaningful and lasting way!!
The information I learned and the skills I gained have become an important part of my teaching repertoire! The relationships I developed and the adventure I undertook added a new element of joy to my life! I look forward with a great deal of gratitude and excitement to sharing what I have learned with teachers throughout the country!
Thank you Allan, Cheryl, and everyone at Poetry Alive!"
