“Ms. Frazier, thank you so much for the work you do for our students.  Thank you for your time and commitment our students enjoyed the session.”

Kelly Davis, Administration for Instruction and Student Support, Alexandria Public Schools (Virginia)   

"Ms. Frazier read her spirited, emotionally-resonant poetry while joined onstage by our own Webster High jazz musicians for a blending of verse and musical improvisation. Ms. Frazier beautifully communicated her personal and universal sketches to our students, demonstrating that she is a singular poet, educator, and performer."

Steve Leftridge, Teacher, WGHS All Write Festival (Missouri)
