On Teaching: Dedicated to All My Students Selected by Gladys Acosta-Melendez
This year I will retire after almost 42 years of teaching. It has been a splendid journey. I learned so much from my students. So the education was on me. I dedicate this notebook to all my students. I hope they know how much I loved teaching and the honor it has been for me. I hope they have learned to love poetry as much as I do. Poetry is life and life is poetry. Keep a poem in your heart. You will never know when you may need one to soothe your day.
A collection of poems devoted to teaching, learning and just being in the now.
