Langston Hughes

Langston Hughes

I love Langston Hughes poetry. I used to use it in my teaching. I shifted between poem and modified a unit on the poetry of the Harlem Renaissance which brought in other poets, the blues, hip-hop. etc. Hughes’ metaphors are so powerful and life-like. The students enjoyed Mother to Son.


About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.
