Yakima Valley College
Guided Pathways Coordinator
I'm an educator but also a poet and story teller. I am able to "teach" poetry every winter at my college, but I don't consider myself a teacher so much as a responder and sounding board as well as practitioner and student myself. Poem are all around us if we choose to pick them up or run after them. They exist in our experiences physical and otherwise and even exist outside of our experiences as new experiences of the mind, heart, and spirit, breath and heart beat. People can talk to me about the words they talk use talking with me.
