It was an honor to develop and teach a 12-week class in Poetic & Narrative Techniques, & Playwriting for the 3rd graders at Sabal Palm Elementary. We celebrated our time together with the publication of the pamphlet (pictured above) and with a performance of the play they wrote. This class later became STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) certified.
