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.
