Teaching With Heart

Come join State Sen. Jamie Raskin and others at our special celebration of teachers on Wednesday June 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium. Raskin is one of the contributors to a new book, Teaching With Heart: Poetry That Speaks to the Courage to Teach, which was edited by Takoma Park resident Megan Scribner. Other contributors who will be part of the presentation include Liam Corley, Kathleen Glaser, Dennis Huffman and Christine Intagliata. The program will include lively readings from the book, in which 90 diverse teachers, educators and administrators share the poems that inspire them, along with their own heartfelt, moving stories about how each poem guides their teaching. Copies of the book will be available for purchase for the special teacher in your life (although no purchase is required to attend the program). So mark your calendar for what promises to be a memorable evening!
