Book 113: World Class: Poems Inspired by the ESL Classroom by Jane C. Elkin (Review Requested)

This beautiful little book was so inspiring!

Jane C. Elkin is/was a teacher of ESL (English as a Second Language) and taught people of many different nationalities. This tiny book of poetry accomplishes the task of communicating powerful descriptions of her students and her teaching experience with just a few words. She effectively shows variations in her students' cultures and backgrounds, giving us a whiff of their struggles, allowing us to imagine even further their lives outside of the classroom. Her style gives the reader just enough to get the imagination going.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Elkins' collection of poetry, and I would recommend it to just about anyone.
