Introduction for glogirlwriter

I currently hold a position as a teacher of seventh grade writing in a small urban one-school district in New Jersey. Before then, I held various jobs, and before then, I was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey. Newark is so much more than what is conveyed by the media. I go back occasionally to see friends and support community and events supporting schools. By the way, please support traditional public schools! I am a mother, recently widowed. I have two cats, the oldest being my Midnight. My hobbies include writing poetry, surfing social media, and occasional exercise. I am hoping to publish my own book. In the meanwhile, I will keep writing poetry. For me, poetry is painting with words.

Hi glogirlwriter ! Welcome to the community at Persona Paper. I'm sorry to learn you've been recently widowed; what a difficult time this must be for you and your family.

Welcome to the community here at Persona Paper. I hope you enjoy your experiences here. I would recommend connecting to our site administrators, elitecodex (Will) and MaeLou (Heather). They are a husband/wife team who are our contacts and keep the community updated with developments. If you're on Facebook, you may want to join the official Persona Paper page. It's a closed group, so discussions there are among the community only. I've written a tutorial about how to develop connections here at the site, if you're interested:

I look forward to reading your word art and hope you'll enjoy your experiences here. : )

I have the same interest in traditional education that you do. I hope to learn how to write poetry from you. I have never done it and don't know where to start.
