Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus

Our work as teachers has never been more demanding. It’s easy to lose heart at the conditions of schools and the difficult work we engage in daily. We enter this workshop with the fundamental belief that poetry can help us reconnect our hearts to our teaching and give heart to our students as well. Using the principles of Courage to Teach®, we will focus on renewing ourselves as educators.
