RESVT Episode 024 National Poetry Month Part 2 and Jeh Kulu #nationalpoetrymonth #vted #edchat

What an amazing week at RES just before the vacation.  Not only was it National Poetry Month, but we also had the pleasure and honor of hosting Jeh Kulu for a week as our Artists in Residence.  In this episode of the RESVT Podcast we hear from third grade scholars as they share original poems with the world.  After that we listen in on the powerful experience our students and staff experienced with Jeh Kulu.

We have many people to thank from this episode:
