Right now I am watching "The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler" - previewing it before showing it to my 8th-grade students. I am saddened by the terrible treatment of the Jews by the Germans, but amazed at the courage it took for parents to send their children to live with Polish families to be safer, and for others to risk their lives to save children and others. It was a terrible time in our world's history, but I am grateful to hear stories of the goodness that existed then, too.
I'm a daughter, sister, friend, and book lover turned English teacher. This blog is all about the things I'm learning as I go through my many adventures. For more info about me, check out the About Me page.
