SPOTLIGHT: Arts, Poetry and More

The Joy of Poetry Two retired English teachers, Bari Attis and John Gabrielson, share their love of poetry
Bari Attis
John Gabrielson
After a career teaching high school English for 35 years in northern New Jersey, John and his wife Marie moved to Delray Beach ten years ago. John holds an undergraduate and two graduate degrees in English literature, taught all four grades and several ability levels of high school students, and was instrumental in developing his district's Writing Center program. More recently, he taught ILIR's "Joy of Poetry" in previous, in-person sessions. He and Marie pursue their interests in theater, music, dance and other arts in Palm Beach County, an area they find rich in cultural offerings. They also enjoy "just chilling" with their rescue Poovanese dog Teddy!
