A quick kudos to my friend J.R., who is beginning her first semester as part of the Oregon Literary Arts WITS program. WITS stands for Writers In The Schools, and the cool thing is that J - an accomplished poet and author of two picture books, now gets to be the icing on the cake to 9th and 10th graders at her high schools. I would have died to have an actual poet and writer in our classroom for even a day, much less an entire semester. Lucky, lucky kids - and lucky Jo!
