Welcome to my one hundred and twenty-fifth segment of Tuesday's Truths which is coinciding with National Teacher's Day (NTD). This unofficial holiday always occurs on a Tuesday during Teacher Appreciation Week, which takes place in the first full week of May.
On this day, I'd like to thank the those who have given me the opportunity to give my presentation (that is based on birds included in my book series, Words In Our Beak) to their students.
I spoke at about the topic of wild birds and bullying in our own lives and culture.
Studying the wild birds in NYC and surrounding areas has important implications for understanding the similarities of human behavior and the behaviors of members within the avian community. The topics I covered in my presentation included how birds teach us about the human race in such matters (to name a few) as finding our voice, ways in which we compensate our behaviors to meet our needs, accepting our physical appearances, and how bullying impacts our lives.
