Kelly Waterbury is an educator, a writer, a singer, a hiker, a maker of art, but most importantly, a mother. She has spent the past 33 years teaching children and raising four of her own. Poetry has been a source of personal growth and introspection. She is looking forward to a month of revisiting her love of words and reflecting.
