About the Artist
Jamie Houghton is a spoken word performer and poet. She performs her writing through many mediums, including performance poetry, playing bass, songwriting, and storytelling. She is passionate about inspiring students through written and spoken word.
As an instructor my passions are poetry, interdisciplinary curriculum, and special needs classrooms. I’m inspired when listening to the needs of classrooms and communities, and adjusting my approach to create the best experience possible for each student.
“Jamie is a conscientious and eager educator. She was open to assimilating the ideas of other teachers into the planning. As difficult as it can be coming in as a guest teacher, Jamie had no trouble connecting with our students."
