In our last Women's History Month newsletter, we are grateful to the women who agreed to share a bit of their personal and professional journey, Lynnann Yazzie, Dr. Lupita Ley Hightower, and Dr. Adama Sallu. To all the women who make up our educator workforce – from bus drivers to paraprofessionals to school nurses to classroom teachers, thank you for putting your time, talents, and energy into ensuring our students' social, emotional, and academic success.

Each week, we will highlight a resource to help teachers understand and integrate critical stories from both famous and overlooked women who shaped U.S. History.
This week, we are sharing the Arizona Women’s History Alliance’s Educator Resources webpage featuring timelines, biographies, and essays on some of the critical moments in Arizona’s women’s history and the women behind those stories.
