A lot has happened since the last blog! Here are a few highlights:
In August, I uploaded a Messages From Maryam Unit Study to Teachers Pay Teachers, a website where teachers can buy and sell classroom resources from each other. I wrote the Unit Study for the upper elementary grades, and it can be used in all subjects. Some of the resources include lessons on writing letters, graphing, and climate. You can purchase the Unit Study by visiting: www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Messages-From-Maryam-Unit-Study-3300889.
Last weekend, I signed and sold books at the Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale. I am so grateful to Harvey Yoder and Dave Rush for offering me the opportunity! The Relief Sale was raising money for Mennonite Central Committee, specifically for their refugee fund, which goes to help people in crisis all over the world. The Relief Sale brought in over $35,000! I really enjoyed meeting people and sharing Messages From Maryam with them!
Perhaps most exciting is that another book is in the works! It is being illustrated now! I'm not ready to release more specifics, but I will post them as they become available!
