“The Best Sort of Teaching.”

This article, from NPR, hits every single reason why I love the Emmett Wilson project.

Emmett’s story is about connecting emotionally with someone from the past; but it is also about understanding that everyone’s place in this world matters, and so do the lives gone before ours.

The lessons I’ve learned (so far) in honoring someone long forgotten will stay with me always.

The teacher in this article understands all of these things, too. What a powerful way to show young people that history is, indeed, relevant.
