Jonathan Moody

Hello! My name is Jonathan Moody, & I have taught English at Pearland High School for six years. As a child whose parents were in the Air Force, I have lived in California and in Germany; however, I grew up in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. Currently, I live in Fresno, Texas, with my wife, Shade', & my two-year-old son, Avery Langston.

In addition to being a teacher, I am also the author of two poetry collections: The Doomy Poems (Six Gallery Press, 2012) & Olympic Butter Gold: Poems which won the 2014 Cave Canem Northwestern University Press Poetry Prize.
