Poet Paul

At the beginning of the month, ISKL had a fabulous visitor! Our librarian organized for Paul Cookson, a poet from the UK, to come for a week to work with our kiddos.

I was so proud to finally have him in our library posing with the bulletin board I made!

He is one of the few traveling children's performance poets. He performed and worked one on one with our students in their classrooms and special classes. Check out his website!

His enthusiasm for our students was incredible. His last words to our kids in an assembly was about doing what you love and giving it your all to see where it takes you. You all know that I not only agree, but live by that!

 By the end of the week, I'm lucky to say he is a new friend.
