I wrote this poem in preparation for Writing Workshop class with my students tomorrow. The template I will offer my students is slightly different from this one (a big thank you to Kathleen Neagle Sokolowski from her poetry Google Slides Deck to build community in the classroom.
Resourceful, goofy, nerdy.
Partner of Gino; mother of Joaquín, Maya and Noemí; grandmother of Pía and Nina.
Lover of justice, books, my family and rom com movies.
Who wonders if the world will ever be OK.
Who fears putting herself out there.
Who feels happy when she’s relaxing at the beach.
Who would like to live closer to her daughters.
Who has dedicated her life to working with kids.
Who dreams of publishing a book one day.
