Sharpies & Snacks!

Help me give my students sharpies and snacks for an upcoming springtime poetry project!

My Students

I teach English to high school students in upstate New York. Our area was home to many corporations and small businesses, but as the economy has shifted, so has this area. My goal is to encourage our students to become successful futures members of society in the hopes that they will give back to the area they grew up in.

I am always looking for ways to engage and motivate my students when starting, working through, and completing different units.

They respond well to real-world and hands-on experiences, so I always try to find those opportunities for them. Please consider supporting these students in their next learning adventure!

My Project

Every Spring, my students spend at least a month discovering and reading poetry. With that, they themselves become poets and write their own poetry. One of their favorite forms of poetry that we do is Black Out Poetry.

Help me provide my students with new Sharpie markers and some snacks to enjoy while they complete their Blackout Poetry!

We almost always enter the New York Times Blackout Poetry contest, and last year, one of my students won! Help me give my students this year the same opportunity to win the contest! Having fresh, new sharpies and snacks will help motivate them to complete their poems.
