Thanks to COVID – interest, availability, cost, and all other things have been in constant flux. Both webinars scheduled in January have been moved, my calendar has completely changed. But this is the world and life we live in . . . so here’s my new schedule of webinar presentations coming up!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This week, allow me to remind you that Black History Month is right around the corner!

Given the past two years there are even more resources available to us, even more plans and ideas to integrate, include, and invigorate our instruction.

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend–much deserved–and I can’t wait to hear about what you’ve done in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., and I can’t for next month . . . all the months!

On Dr. Seuss . . .

It has taken some time to understand last month’s news saga and controversy around Dr. Seuss.

As an educator, as an avid reader, as someone committed to DEI and antiracism, I took my time forming an opinion and evaluation. I wanted to listen with intention. I wanted to consider disciplines and connections.

I ended up turning my thoughts and analysis into an article, and this article is currently being featured on Educate, on Medium.

I am thrilled to be featured, and I hope you will take the time to read it 🤗.
