    1. I love hiking nearby at Spencer’s Butte and Mount Pisgah. Although, my favorite places to hike a little further away are Mount Rainier (not up in the snow!) and Crater Lake.

  1. You have started a nice collection of memory’s. Do you keep all the blogs worth reading after your students go to eight grade?
    And I wish to know if there are any poetry slams happening here in Oregon soon. And you have helped me find a dream I wish to accomplish in the future. I want to make it on TED and be able to read my poetry to the world. Thank you!!

    1. I have no doubt that you will fly high reaching towards those dreams and far beyond. I do plan on keeping the blogs worth reading magazine – this being the first edition – for future students to enjoy. Tsunami Books hosts a monthly poetry slam for all ages; I think there is a small entry fee, but it offers you the chance to take your work to another stage. Let me know if you decide to perform- I’d love to be there!

  2. I never got that comment for ‘Speak’.
    I don’t know what the problem is.
    But Ill keep trying!
    Thank you for the comment even if I cant read it!
