National Poetry Month Vision Starter Pack Poetry Edition: Jasmin “Jade” Vann
Time & Location
About the Event
Poetry is so important because it helps us understand and appreciate the world around us. Poetry’s strength lies in its ability to shed a “sideways” light on the world, so the truth sneaks up on you. No question about it. Poetry teaches us how to live. Poetry is like the Windex on a grubby car window—it bares open the vulnerabilities of human beings so we can all relate to each other a little better.
Jasmin “Jade” Vann, a Dillard University and University of Houston graduate, is an experienced public educator with over 12 years in public education. As a vessel of empowerment, her desire is to equip her students through learning and intelligent discussion to become independent thinkers with self-actualized and realized convictions that provoke them to live on healthy and constructive terms, as law-abiding citizens of the world.
Jasmin “Jade” Vann will lead youth through empowering activities that build confidence and demonstrate the importance of poetry related to educating and enlightening our children from an early age and beyond.
