White teacher Blog title...

The first book that i read in my diversity in the family class is called White Teacher. It is written by Vivian Paley. It is now on Bookshare. If someone wants to check it out. It follows Ms. Paley with her journey of teahcing in a class of black and white children. She is also jewish. The book shows her that even she has biases and prejudices. For example, she refers to the birls that play in the doll corner as the black girls. Yet, she calls the white girls by name. The realization comes when a fellow teacher points this out to her. It is a really good book that future educators should read.
