    As Sue walks to school, she admires the blue sky. On the playground, she asks her friends one at a time, "Isn't the blue sky beautiful today?" Much to her surprise, each friend sees the sky as a different color, depending on where they are from. But some other kids think this is weird. Will this change the way Sue sees her friends and the sky?

    Sue's Sky uses the gentle metaphor of the sky to encourage young readers to accept others' perspectives of the world around them. Join author Lulu Buck and discover how you can use Sue's Sky to expand your practices to support for equity, decency, respect, culturally and linguistically diverse learning in your system.

    Lulu Buck has been a public educator for twenty-three years and is currently the Coordinator of Educational Equity and Family Engagement for St Vrain Valley School District. Previously, Lulu was an English Language Development and World Language Senior Consultant for the Office of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education, and the Standards and Instructional Support Office at the Colorado Department of Education. She was also the CDE's Coordinator for the Colorado Seal of Biliteracy for High School Diplomas and Dual Language Education.

    Imagine a school with a culture so positive that everyone thrives: students and educators alike. Classrooms are lively, students feel they’re part of a community that cares about them, and teachers are happy and productive. Too good to be true? Not in a ridiculously amazing school. 

    Join co-author Tracey Smith and discover how to take care of educators first—and cultivating supportive relationships—to create profound and positive changes throughout your school community. Together you will explore the five key elements of courageous schools: schools that understand it takes a “whole” teacher to teach the “whole” child.
