90 copies of Yellow Star by @Jenroybook waiting to be passed out to my 8th graders tomorrow. I CANNOT WAIT! We’ve been prepping & learning about the time period all week to prepare to start reading next week. I’m so excited to teach this book! ❤️ #elateacher #teacherlife

Wow! Thank you 💛 @Sarabeth_13 for sharing Yellow Star... and hello to each one of your students from Aunt Sylvia (Syvia) and me.

For the March issue of @VanityFair, I wrote about the unlikely friendship between @MadeleineLEngle & Ahmad Rahman, a brilliant Black Panther incarcerated for a murder he didn't commit. 

What an extraordinary piece about this friendship and correspondence. Ahmad Rahman's full story needs to be heard.

At Auschwitz we see the end of the long process. It's important to remember that the Holocaust did not start from gas chambers & murder.

The hatred slowly developed from ideas, words, stereotypes & prejudice, through legal exclusion, escalating violence & dehumanization.

I feel like I’m grieving for the career I’ve built. There is no way it is sustainable, being the primary caregiver for my children during this pandemic. Of course my kids come first but I’m just so sad to see all I’ve built being washed away. It is like a sandcastle at the beach.

30 things you can do that might help #autistic people in your lives.

A thread. Please read and share widely, and add to it as you see fit.

#autism #autistic

You'd be surprised who in your life is #autistic.

If every teacher, parent (and, quite frankly, human) would read this and follow @commaficionado , the world would literally change.

Kristallnacht was a 2 day pogrom that:

- destroyed 7000 Jewish owned businesses
- burned 267 synagogues
- murdered 91 Jews
- deported 30,000 Jews to concentration camps

PLEASE stop using it as a comparison to anything that's listed above.

Autistic culture is being called a "little professor" with "intense passions" as a kid, only to be told you're a "know-it-all" with "immature obsessions" as an adult.
