Your Poet:  Jody Weissler

Jody Weissler loves all types of poetry. But when it came to teaching poetry with his own classroom he found that some of the most recognized poetry was simply too nonsensical or even too silly to be utilized effectivley in the classroom.  After writing a few poems himself and garnering the feedback of educators around the world. He decided to publish enough poems to create several years worth of curriculum for teachers.
