Donnie Welch, a young white man with glasses wearing a red button-down shirt, looks at a classroom white board with his hands clasped. On the board is some writing from an inclusive poetry workshop in blue expo. The angle of the photo makes it difficult to read some of the text, but it’s structured in a poetic manner with line breaks.
It’s a rare word to use with contemporary poets, but Donnie is sincere.
Donnie’s more concerned with the root than the fruit—more deliberate about the process than the product. It’s this investment in a student’s way of thinking and their curiosity of learning that makes Donnie an educator intent on cultivating learning habits for life and ways of thinking that allow students to take ownership of their life’s journey.
