CLARK — Cindy Tarello, a Clark School District Elementary Gifted and Talented Teacher, taught her fourth grade students how to write “biopoems” as a means of providing a biographical sketch of themselves in a poem format. Students then word processed their biopoems and provided a photograph of themselves to accompany the display of their writing. Mrs. Tarello then created a hallway bulletin board to highlight the fourth graders’ writing exhibit.
