  • "I developed Purposeful Poetry from a desire to foster a love of language in a creative and interesting way. This use of poetry has worked beyond my wildest dreams: my pupils take great pride in their poetry books. Each week we work on a new poem. By the time Friday arrives, the children are asking, 'What will we be doing for our poetry response?' I have even had parents say, 'He is not too well today but he refused to stay at home because he did not want to miss out on your poetry response!' To me, that is success!"
