    I have been so lucky to have Noel Black as a parent in my classroom. The students are lucky too, to have their lovely words broadcast to the community.

  2. For the gift of hearing children reading their own creative poetry, I send my appreciation to the students and teachers, Noel Black and David Mason, and KRCC.
