Welcome to my blog where I document my learning in teaching, coaching, language and culture. During the school year, I have the honor of working with the best of two worlds. Part of my day, I work alongside with English language learners in the classroom part of my day. The other part of my day, I get to share it with wonderful colleagues as we sit down together, providing instructional coaching, brainstorming possibilities together or just listening. 

Malala: Activist for Girl's Education

Even though there are several books about Malala and her amazing work and contribution to girls' education, I believe this book does an excellent job describing not only her role in advocating that girls attends schools but it's also a great celebration of her family and how much it influenced who she is and who she has becomes. 

We get to understand how Malala's father rejects the use of religion to threaten freedom and how much he has influenced her role in using her voice to advocate for others. And even though her journey is not an easy one to read, it's a story worth knowing, worth understanding. 

“One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world”

On July 12, 2013, The United Nations designated this date to be Malala Day. The day celebrates that every child should have the right to go to school. 

Every child should know the happiness of reading. Freely.
