Meta Sarmiento – Video to AIJMS Pirates

Last year, when looking for local slam poetry for students to study, I stumbled across the work of Meta Sarmiento. This year, students studied his poem “The Holidays.” Meta is a poet, rapper, and educator who grew up on the island and graduated from UOG. Currently, he lives and creates content out of Colorado. He even gave a TED Talk a few years ago, and he’s won some major awards for his poetry.
Through the beauty of social media, I was able to contact Meta and ask him to create a video message for our students as a source of encouragement during these difficult times. – Mrs. Melissa Horgan
