Mrs. Zeko and Mrs. Chodos were recognized at the board meeting Tuesday night for their contributions with the live-poetry event, Night of the Spoken Word. Mrs. Zeko has been doing the activity with her sophomore English classes since 2011. Each year, different poets have come to coach the students both in their writing and performing. Many of the students go on to take Mr. Sorenson's class junior year and to participate in the Get Lit poetry slamming competition. Last year, in fact, five of the six school-team-poets were Mrs. Zeko's former students.
"In recognition of your initiative and resourcefulness with bringing innovative ideas that benefit and advance students. The Board of Education applauds you for your commitment to providing a quality education to all students."
