>I am a sixth grade teacher of Literature and Language Arts at the
>Dover-Sherborn Middle School. We will be studying poetry during the
>1997-98 school year and I thought it would be important and interesting
>for the students to have pen pals from areas which might expand their
>horizons. I'm trying to introduce the kids to voices from other cultures,
>races, and geographic locations so that they may begin to examine the
>commonalities and unique qualities that exist outside of the western suburbs.
>I thought it would be fun to send poems to each other.
