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.
What an extraordinary piece about this friendship and correspondence. Ahmad Rahman's full story needs to be heard.
*SIMONE has entered the chat* She’s here and she’s dazzlingly beautiful! Unboxing time for these ARCs and the countdown to the June release feels like it’s speeding up!! Thank you to Team Simone and @Scholastic for this honor. Can’t wait for readers to get this in their hands!!🦋
I'm so honored that SIMONE BREAKS ALL THE RULES is being spotlighted in @scholatic's Spring 2021 Online Preview!!
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.
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.

All students deserve their own space. Please help me to add desks to my Autistic Support class. This will help to stay socially distant when we go #BackToSchool. #edutwitter #education #Autism #AutismAwareness #COVID19 #SocialDistancing @FurryFriendsDC
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.
Kristallnacht. What it is and what it ISN'T...
