About the author (2004)

Mark Dema PhD is a Poet in Residence at Washingtonville Middle School and Marlboro Middle School in the Hudson Valley in New York. He lives in the beautiful Hudson Valley with his wife, Kristina, and his daughter, Victoria. Mark is also a N. Y. State Certified English teacher and a N. Y, State Certified Elementary School teacher. He graduated from the State University at New Paltz, New York with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1973, and earned his Master of Science Degree in 1984 from that same University. He earned his Doctorate in English and Comparative Literature from Cambridge State University in 2001. He taught at St. Francis of Assisi School in Newburgh, New York for sixteen years. He then left St. Francis to become a private tutor and a Poet in Residence. Mark also regales students with Poetry Presentations throughout the Hudson Valley. He teaches students through the magic of words and music. He recites poetry and sings songs on his guitar just as minstrels did hundreds of years ago throughout Europe and Asia. The students learn that poetry transcends time because it expresses feelings. Technology may change but human emotions remain intact throughout the centuries. Mark considers his work a vocation, and feels privileged to touch the lives of so many students in such a special way.
