Donnie Welch is a poet and educator who has worked with students with intellectual, developmental, and multiple disabilities since 2014. He began work as a teaching assistant at the Kennedy Day School in Brighton, MA before moving to New York City and starting at the Rebecca School where he developed an individualized creative writing curriculum for students there over the course of three years. Along with his education work, Welch is a published poet and children's author. When not teaching or writing, he can most likely be found hiking in Inwood Hill Park, the Hudson Valley, or along the Appalachian Trail.
