I always say that I love Robert Frost because a teacher loved him first. A favorite high school English teacher was crazy in love with his poetry; her passion was contagious. She traveled to Washington DC to hear him give the Inaugural poem for JFK. She visited Robert Frost Farm, in Derry, New Hampshire. Just shows you how a teacher can ignite a lifelong interest and passion. One of my favorite gifts ever is a book of his poetry given to me by my son.
The Robert Frost Farm website is a fun visit, filled with so many great teaching ideas—or just linger awhile during this month when we honor our American poets, explore and enjoy.
