Poetry comes to us as naturally as oxygen, once we learn to breathe it.


The Teaching Artists of Troupe d’ Jour

equip students and educators with fresh

techniques for understanding poetry,

and enjoying it.


Our strategies bear proven results

in the classroom, on test days,

and for lifelong learning.


We incorporate all learning styles in

every session, engaging each student

for her/his fullest participation.


*TdJ’s Spoken Word Events create opportunities for students to read or recite their original and favorite poems,

and thereby join our Said Poets’ Society!
