American author and poet laureate Naomi Shihab Nye visited SIS on January 16, 2015. She is the author of over 30 books and has been recognized by the U.S. federal government for her contributions to poetry. While at SIS, Naomi Nye taught creative writing to several classes in both the middle and high school. She also performed her work in large group assemblies through the "spoken word" and music. Following her visit, the teachers at SIS, utilizing technology in the classroom, created a collaborative "One Day Anthology" of student writing inspired by Naomi and sent it to her as a small token of thanks.
