Workshops with Sandrekkia is guaranteed to be a high energy experience that will leave students wanting to write and speak more than ever. Not only does the workshops give students a chance to learn how to effectively manage their emotions, but each residency supplements the core standards for literacy, writing, and communication.

With her workshops students get a chance to be seen and heard. Her workshops are engaging and will make any students happy to participate. Morning’s approach is to educate the whole child and give them skills that will allow them to excel in school and in life. As each residency ends with a showcasing event (Poetry Slam or Open Mic) it allows for the participation of the students, teachers, staff, and parents.
