Social studies and ELA educators from St. Lucie participated in the Echoes and Reflections Holocaust training. The training was provided by the Holocaust Task Force organized by Linda Medvin, Director of the FAU Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education. The engaging presentation was lead by Stephanie McMahon Kaye from Yad Vashem.
“I found this training to be an eye opening and engaging experience. I am excited to implement the curriculum side by side with the language arts department at the end of the school year. I truly feel that the students will gain a greater understanding of the tragedy that was the Holocaust. At times emotional, this powerful presentation left me with a sense of my importance as an educator and a responsibility to share with my students.”
