Theresa Davis is the mother of three and was a classroom teacher for over twenty years. She reclaimed her love for poetry ten years ago after the loss of her father. Since then, she has been a member of the ArtsInterface,  Co-founder of Art Amok Slam Team, Women of the World Slam Champion (2011), poet in residence as the 2012 McEver Chair of Georgia Tech University, Emerging Artist Grant Recipient, co-producer of the staged poetry performance with Jon Goode "Wish You Were Here", and was honored by the City of Atlanta with a proclamation making May 22, Theresa Davis Day.

In July 2012, Theresa released her Chapbook "Simon Says" poems about teaching and anti-bullying themes. This project, in partnership with the City of Atlanta's Bureau of Cultural Affairs, is a call to action to bring about an end to bully culture in our children's classrooms. As a contracted author, with Sibling Rivalry Press, Theresa has released her first published collection of poems entitled "After This We Go Dark."
