We are still receiving such positive feedback about the event and, specifically, Brod himself. Tell him BGSU says hello! And thank you for all of your help throughout the process!

I enjoyed the energy he brought to his presentation and how passionate he felt about it. The part I liked the most was how he knew many of his poems. This showed how dedicated to his work he is and also gave us a good sense of who he was as a poet and a performer.

I attended a workshop you taught at the Davis County School district in Farmington, Utah two years ago. I bought your books and began "performing" your poems in class. I then had students "perform" your poems for the class. This has become one of the highlights of the year for my students. Thank you, thank you, thank you! What a difference your poems have made! My class loves your poetry first and then moves on to love poetry from many other poets who are "almost" as good. Poets like Jack Prelutsky, Shel Silverstein, Lewis Carrol, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, etc. etc. My wife and I bought a used copy of "Steel Cables" from Amazon. We have loved reading it together.

I am more determined to include poetry in my classroom since the presentation. I loved the tips of how to present poetry in the classroom. I think it is a great way for children to express themselves and can be easily integrated across the curriculum.

I just had to email you to let you know that Brod was at my school yesterday and He was FANTASTIC!!! I can honestly say that he has been the best visiting author I have had in my 19 years of librarianship. He was like the energizer bunny! Constantly performing for the children! They loved him! I would recommend his program to anyone.

A principal of a high poverty school, I watch Brod Bagert challenge my students to become something more than what people believe they will become. I watch as my children see themselves in his poems and dream dreams that temporarily elevate them from the poverty in which they live and transport them into the world that he has created. I cannot say enough about the man that makes my children smile!

We LOVED Brod's performance today. We have 150 kids in our after-school programs. As they got picked up, they were telling their parents - quite animatedly - all about his show! His visit touched the lives of 500 children and our faculty.
