Happy Saint Patrick's Day...A bit o' the green has peeked through the cold breeze in Virginia. Today, I am preparing to spend time with Librarians in my region learning about ways of teaching and learning through librarianship.
Poetry Friday is hosted by poet, reader, grandmother, leader.....Linda Baie at Teacher Dance. Enjoy pearls of poetry she so graciously shares there. She's kicking off spring with some words from Robert Loveland.
I'm discovering Irish Poet, Eavan Boland (click on her name for video). Spoiler alert...she's great!
The Lost Art of Letter Writing (video here)
By Eavan Boland
