Last week, I received this email from a parent.
Dear Mrs. Smythe,
I have to tell you that I loved hearing what Ava learned about Dr. Martian Luther King. (Yes, I said Martian.)
She shared about how “brown people don't have to go to the back of the line like they had to before Martian Luther King said they could go with the white people, as long as they get there first. You still can't cut because that would be rude.”
She may think he was a Martian, but she heard the message loud and clear. J
Reason 4,567 of why I teach.
