I am back as a writer for Teaching Tolerance after a necessary hiatus due to the demands of completing my doctoral studies.
My lastest post entitled Confronting Creepy Crawlies and Implicit Bias is reposted below.

"I'm so happy, happy, happy I could cry"
I am an unabashed theater fan. I've spent many hours watching performers strut their stuff upon the wicked stage and never more so than with the spectacularly talented Alison Fraser.Romance/Romance
- Playing her ode to fortitude "Hold On" from The Secret Garden while my team teacher Oni beautifully interpreted it in American Sign Language.
- A couple of six-year-olds adorably reenacting the meeting of Pepi and Alfred strolling down the Alserstrasse in Romance/Romance.
When the time finally arrived Alison gleefully entered the classroom as "I'll Always Remember the Song" played in the background.
- A little Polka lesson.
