Gay Fawcett

VOTED YET? DON’T FORGET TO SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION FOR OUR NOVEMBER POETS! THE VOTING BOXES ARE POSTED NOVEMBER 24. TO SEE ALL THE POEMS, CHECK NOVEMBER 23. Adult leaders through yesterday are STEVEN, MARJIE, and JENNIFER. MIMI currently has the most votes but can’t win a second time in twelve months. Young poet leaders are CLAIRE, TASHA, and SOHPIE.

I promised to post today more of Gay Fawcett’s biographical information, so here it is.

Gay is a former teacher, principal, curriculum director, and director of Kent State University’s Research Center for Educational Technology. She now teaches online and face-to-face university courses, consults with schools, and writes (of course!). She has authored or co-authored over 100 educational articles, book chapters, and books. She collaborated with David Harrison and Tim Rasinski on the recently published Partner Poems for Building Fluency: Grades 4-6.

Working with Gay has been a delight. She’s the mind behind nearly all of the classroom activities presented in our book. We’ve never met in person so I look forward to the day when we will. I’m so pleased to present Gay’s remarks tomorrow as my second blog guest!

David
