Featured Student Writer: Reese Desmond

on May 7, 2012

ImageSeven-year-old Reese Desmond is today’s featured student writer.  Reese is taught by Mrs. Andreu in the second grade at PVPV/Rawlings Elementary School.  Reese was a Top Ten Winner for our national Fall 2011 poetry contest.  Her poem, “Candy,” was one of the ten best for the K-3 age division.

Reese’s mom explains, “Reese is a vibrant young girl.  [She] likes candy, and is learning about having a sweet tooth.  She loves M&M’s, which were a perfect starting place for describing candy!  She loves rhyme, and has been inspired by none other than Dr. Seuss 🙂  When telling stories or singing songs, she loves to create rhyming lyrics.  She enjoys using events and activities from her everyday life to help her create poems and stories. We are very proud of our little girl!!”

Congratulations, Reese!  Thank you for sharing what inspired your winning piece and thank you to your teacher, Mrs. Andreu, for the great job she is doing in the classroom.
