Carlene Gadapee’s many poem drafts lay dormant for years as she figured out what she wanted to be when she grew up; finally, they have been kicked out of the nest and some are flying along nicely. She is a high school English teacher/WMCC Running Start (dual enrollment) instructor in a northern New Hampshire public k-12 school at which she has taught for almost 31 years. Her adult daughter lives next door (another successful nest-eviction), and Carlene now shares her small New England home with her husband, a Chi-pin dog who owns the couch, and a few beehives. Carlene has a Master’s Degree in Education, and she will graduate in December, 2018 with a second Master’s Degree (MA-Liberal Studies) from Northern Vermont University. She is a yearly Conference on Teaching and Poetry/Writing Intensive participant at the Frost Place in Franconia, NH, and she is a devoutly sports-addicted bibliophile. Her work has been published in the Aurorean, the Northern New England Review, and Sojourn (UT-Dallas).
