It was my distinct pleasure to chat with Vera Ahiyya, "The Tutu Teacher". Vera's Instagram account Diverse Reads has been a game changer for our family. We discuss how Vera makes her book selections for Diverse Reads, how she got started being a kindergarten teacher, some of the issues with the inequity In our education system and she gives some really valuable advice to all parents. Plus, a way to spread some good and help our teachers. This is an FTG conversation not to be missed.
