The students and faculty at Jonesport Elementary School had a door open to poetry like never before! On November 5th, Paul Janeczko presented on poetry forms to the entire preK-8 student body, sharing the humor and creativity that poetry can offer. The kids and teachers alike were giggling away at silly senryus and over-the-top acrostics.
After the large assembly, there were breakout classroom sessions with 3rd-6th grade. Paul is no stranger to classroom visits, though…with 22 years of teaching English in his resume, he certainly brought the kind of engaging discussions and great mix of hilarity and learning that made everyone wish he was there to stay. Our warm thanks to Danielle Fagonde and the entire staff at JES, and Paul Janeczko for his warmth, skill and overall good cheer.
