"Hey, Miss B! I left and thought 'I can't believe we almost didn't get her into the poetry class'. You were right when you said it was a highlight, and also I was already worrying she won't have you next year for poetry! I think my favorite part was that all the kids seemed to have a respect and reverence for the poetry that one wouldn't anticipate... and that is obviously from you. You hold them in high regard and so they rise to the occasion. Teaching them the pertinence of the literary word and the meanings we pass down over time, and doing so in a way where they obviously grasped the magnitude... I was so thrilled, as usual, to know you!"
