Equity: Story 12 – Being Known

By Regie Routman

Literacy Essentials by Regie Routman contains some wonderfully personal stories from the author's own lived experience as a devoted family member, friend, and educator. In this series, Regie narrates each of these stories and, in doing so, invites us to reflect on our own literacy and learning lives.

A heartbreaking, but not uncommon tale, of an accomplished, kind woman who winds up unknown at the end of her life. Now her unique story is finally told and honored—just as each person’s life story needs to be.
