Overview

L.D. Dockery has been an educator for over forty years, instructing
mathematics on the college, high school, and middle grades levels.
The latter part of his career was steered towards teaching at alternative
schools which was his awakening to improving reading skills as a
primary objective. His roles as parent, pastor, performer, professor, and
poet, his fi ve Pâ??s of personal endurance, challenge him to encourage
reading as it relates to mathematics in the academic community and
to make reading a community effort across all disciplines. As a child,
he loved watching cartoons. His grasp of the experience was the
profound imagery of animals that talked and his remembering their
lines of conversation. â??They could sing, dance, etc., as wished.
Why not let them teach?� This was the voice of inspiration that would drive
him to poetry involving animals that could tell stories as well as teach
about community. In his belief, this is the core of existence around which
all knowedge should adhere. His way is to allow everything to breathe from
community. As in the series, reading and math are instructed from a sense of
community of which his characters are viable parts with each
supporting each other. The school is no more than a formal educational
institution serving the needs within the community. It is said that, â??He
writes from the heart,â? referring to his POETRHYME. It is from this â??point
of view� that he aspires to write, not so much from research as from
insearch, as he writes from his rich â??personal experience.â? With the
author, L.D. Dockery, what is or is to be said is â??from the heart.
