I ran into old friends, but not a single student [not countin' you Boyd] I knew. Alas, those that I taught have all graduated, and a new bunch taken their place --- younger than ever they are, older than ever I am. Such vitality, such youth, such energy --- made me wanna come home and take a nap.
Regardless, here's a shout out to KMHS and these fine students who had the nerve and the presence to stand up in front of an audience and recite poetry.
the winners -- first is on the left
the judge [for the record, that pencil does not hold the power of the red pen]
my friend, Debbie [retired], another judge
during the scoring interlude, Kyle [in white shirt to the left] performed his poem titled "Monsters"----with help from a few of his friends...[twas very funny]
*holds up lighter*
the man in the middle, Coy Dunn [not-retired], is KMHS's drama teacher
BTW: he is currently in competition for Georgia's Teacher of the Year -- Good luck, Coy.
For more information: Poetry Out Loud.
Not pictured--- good friend Nan [not-retired], media specialist, and organizer of this competition for KMHS
