The first day of creative writing class, I discuss the importance of gifts.”With great power comes great responsibility.” Students are encouraged to use their gifts for good. Writing can be used to heal, to inspire, to defend, to comfort, to protect…it must also be used to solve. GreenGeeks is a solution for at least one problem, namely the footprint of your hosting on the environment.

Before I had even formally introduced #world11kids, Callie and Katie were inspired to be involved.

Bobby, Nick, and Rachel created their idea inspired by an art project Rachel has just completed.

My creative writing students are passionate about world issues and realize their moral obligation to make the world a better place whether through art, text, communication, invention…I will continue to share my students’ work as students complete.
