School Visits

School Visit. Hamlin Robinson Elementary. Seattle, WA

I perform a variety of shows and workshops specifically designed for elementary and middle school students.  

Each workshop includes a public speaking component for students to build confidence and have fun while learning

the art of poetry.


All workshops support the Common Core Curriculum.  The following are sample workshops that can be integrated into the classroom to engage students and develop performance skills to prepare them for College and Career Readiness:



Performance Points is a 45 minute workshop that identifies characteristics of an effective performance using multiple strategies such as voice projection and connecting to your audience.  My poem, "When I See Your Face" is analyzed for character and action development as well as theme and the impact that setting has on the tone of the text.



Writing exercises is a 45 minute workshop that focuses on the use of figurative language such as Metaphors and Similes to dive into various poetic forms such as Haikus and Senryus.  Students will be able to create their own poems using their learning about poem structure, point of view and tone analysis.   



Poetry Workshops can also be custom designed to meet your individual school needs.
