Part memoir, part socio-educational treatise, part guidebook, Tending the Roots in a STEM-Crazed World poured out in a flash-flood when I retired from 21 years of classroom teaching in 2021. It is my offering, as grateful witness in an increasingly left-brained, heart-hardening world, to the healing power of making poems.


This is a work-in-progress, which I am releasing as an uncorrected pre-publication pdf, primarily for educators, in hopes that it will move around and find its readers... inspiring new ideas, methods, & creative climates in the classroom & beyond. I welcome feedback at this stage and thank you for being an early reader of this labor of love. 


177 pages in two parts; with 47 Gleanings taken directly from classroom experience, where my students have been the teachers. 


The pages are numbered, but I must apologize that the table of contents isn't synched to those numbers at this point in its creation. Also, the last three of the 34 chapters are incomplete. Your comments might spark their completion! Thank you.
