Eric Ode

Eric Ode is an award-winning performing artist who carried his love of loopy word play into the classroom as an elementary teacher. After earning a master's degree in education technology, he hung up his teaching hat to travel the country. During his performances, Ode focuses on engaging even the youngest of learners with his collection of rollicking characters immortalized in poetry and song. He lives with his wife, Kim, and their two children, two dogs, and four chickens in western Washington.
