March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day so we’re starting this month off with a fantastic interview with Heather Avis. Heather is an advocate and mother to three children; two of whom have Down Syndrome. Heather is on a mission to make a more inclusive world where everyone can belong. And she is doing this through her online communities she’s built on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter called The Lucky Few. She has written a book of the same name and is releasing a children’s book in June entitled “Different: A Great Thing To Be!” which I think all of us will want in our classroom libraries. I truly enjoyed Heather’s and my conversation today, and I hope you will too. And now, onto the show.
