NEISD Technology Spotlight: Sara Romine

It’s poetry month! To celebrate this annual event, Sara Romine, librarian at Woodstone Elementary, is facilitating a Skype session between 4th graders from San Antonio, TX and 2nd graders from South Burlington, VT. She found them via Twitter and the Poem in Your Pocket Day website. Here’s a brief history of the event:

In 2002, as part of New York City’s National Poetry Month celebration, the Office of the Mayor, in partnership with the New York City Departments of Cultural Affairs and Education, initiated Poem in Your Pocket Day, a time for New York City residents to select a poem, carry it with them, and share it with others throughout the day.
