In any profession, everyone has to start somewhere and writers are no different. Every published author out there was once an unpublished author. Fourteen publishers, including big names such as Penguin and HarperCollins, rejected J K Rowling’s manuscript for the first novel in the Harry Potter series. http://simon-rose.com/books/the-childrens-writers-guide/
J.K. Rowling’s New Book Has A Release Date!! It’s been five long years since J.K. Rowling published “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, the final book for the Harry Potter series. But J.K Rowling is far from retiring her passion with writing novels. Earlier this year Rowling had announced she would be writing another book. Her latest book would be “very different to the Harry Potter series”, though she “enjoyed writing it every bit as much.

Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was an author, educator and advisor to U.S. Presidents. He was considered the most influential African American in the 19th and early 20th century. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/jimcrow/stories_people_booker.html
Booker Taliaferro Washington (April 5, 1856 – November 14, 1915) was an African-American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community. Washington was of the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants, who were newly oppressed by disfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws enacted in the post-Reconstruction Southern states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1895 his Atlanta compromise called for avoiding confrontation over segregation and instead putting more reliance on long-term educational and economic advancement in the black community. His base was the Tuskegee Institute, a historically black college in Alabama. As lynchings in the South reached a peak in 1895, Washington gave a speech in Atlanta that made him nationally famous. The speech called for black progress through education and entrepreneurship. His message was that it was not the time to challenge Jim Crow segregation and the disfranchisement of black voters in the South. Washington mobilized a nationwide coalition of middle-class blacks, church leaders, and white philanthropists and politicians, with a long-term goal of building the community's economic strength and pride by a focus on self-help and schooling. Secretly, he supported court challenges to segregation. Black militants in the North, led by W. E. B. Du Bois, at first supported the Atlanta compromise but after 1909 they set up the NAACP and tried with little success to challenge Washington's political machine for leadership in the black community. Decades after Washington's death in 1915, the Civil Rights movement generally moved away from his policies to take the more militant NAACP approach. Booker T. Washington mastered the nuances of the political arena in the late 19th century which enabled him to manipulate the media, raise money, strategize, network, pressure, reward friends and distribute funds while punishing those who opposed his plans for uplifting blacks. His long-term goal was to end the disfranchisement of the vast majority of African Americans living in southern states, where most of the millions of black Americans still lived.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. worked tirelessly to speak belief into his people; to help and inspire them to rise up and take their rightful place in the world. I wonder what the world would be like if everybody was able to give breath to their dreams. I wonder want would happen if everyone had the safe space around them and within them to discover their true nature and find their true purpose in life.

Great Teachers: Annie Sullivan was the first teacher to successfully educate a deaf and mute child...Helen Keller!

Johanna "Anne" Mansfield Sullivan Macy (1866 – 1936), also known as Annie Sullivan, was an American teacher best known as the instructor and companion of Helen Keller. Sullivan was born on April 14, 1866 in Feeding Hills, Massachusetts. Her parents' names were Thomas Sullivan and Alice Cloesy Sullivan and they were Irish immigrants who couldn't read and had little money. In 1874 her mother, Alice, died, probably of tuberculosis; after which Anne was sent to an almshouse, that today is Tewksbury Hospital in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. She was at Tewksbury for four years. In 1880, Anne, who was blind from untreated trachoma, was sent to the Perkins School for the Blind. Michael Anaganos, director of the Institute, then located in South Boston, was approached to suggest a teacher for the Keller's deafblind daughter. He asked Anne Sullivan, a former student, herself visually impaired and only 20 years old, to become Helen's instructor. It was the beginning of a 49-year relationship, Sullivan evolving into governess and then eventual companion. Anne Sullivan arrived at Keller's house in March 1887, and immediately began to teach Helen to communicate by spelling words into her hand, beginning with "d-o-l-l" for the doll that she had brought Keller as a present. Keller was frustrated, at first, because she did not understand that every object had a word uniquely identifying it. In fact, when Sullivan was trying to teach Keller the word for "mug", Keller became so frustrated she broke the doll. Keller's big breakthrough in communication came the next month, when she realized that the motions her teacher was making on the palm of her hand, while running cool water over her other hand, symbolized the idea of "water"; she then nearly exhausted Sullivan demanding the names of all the other familiar objects in her world. In the 1920 census, Helen Keller was 38 years old and listed as head of her household in the Queens, New York Census. Anne is listed as living with her, age 52, listed as a private teacher of Helen. In 1932 they were each awarded honorary fellowships from the Educational Institute of Scotland. They also were awarded honorary degrees from Temple University. By 1935, Sullivan became completely blind just one year before her death on October 20, 1936 in Forest Hills, New York. She died at age 70 after a coma, with Keller holding her hand. When Keller herself died in 1968, her ashes were placed in the Washington National Cathedral next to Anne's. As lifelong companions Sullivan and Keller continually lived, worked, and traveled together.
Anne Sullivan, the teacher and lifelong companion of Helen Keller, was born on this day in 1866. As a young child, she was stricken with an eye infection that left her blind. After being educated at a school for the blind, she accepted a position as Keller's teacher where she quickly earned a reputation as "The Miracle Worker" for her special ability to get through to Keller. The pair quickly became role models for physically disabled people around the world.

Socrates.. Socrates was born in 470 BC, in Athens, Greece. We know of his life through the writings of his students, including Plato and Xenophon. His "Socratic method," laid the groundwork for Western systems of logic and philosophy. When the political climate of Greece turned, Socrates was sentenced to death by hemlock poisoning in 399 BC. He accepted this judgment rather than fleeing.
Great Teachers: Socrates is considered one of Western Civilization's most significant teachers and philosophers. Do you ever use the Socratic method in your classroom?
