Logan McGraw, in Mrs. Bradford's class, is very lucky. His grandmother, Mrs. Beaman, is a professional poet. She visited Mrs. Bradford's class a few times throughout the school year, and taught the students how to add voice and make better word choices when writing their poems. The students love having her visit, because she is such a kind, sweet-spirited individual. When she visits the classroom, she makes the students feel happier and ten feet taller.
Mrs. Beaman passed away on April 5, 2011. Mrs. Bradford's class wants to let Mrs. Beaman's family know how much they appreciated her help in our classroom. We will not forget the influence she had on us and our poetry.
Our sympathy goes out to the family of Logan McGraw.
