There is awesome #TeachLivingPoets work happening in schools all over the country! Check out these inspiring projects!
Finally, Carrie was inspired by James MacIndoe in Denver, Colorado, who also had his students create a poetry museum in their school. So cool!
These are the COOLEST spaces ever! I wish I had teachers like this in high school. This is so inspiring!
