About the author:
Blair Ault is a high school government and economics teacher in Houston, Texas. To say this has been the strangest year to be a teacher in a city that started with a biblical flood and is now venturing into weekly political activism doesn’t quite capture the awe, despair, luck, and compassion she’s felt every day. Someday she wants to be a librarian, but for now she is content to practice her storytelling through writing or performance in monthly events like Grown-Up Storytime or the Moth StorySlam. Her cats would expect to be mentioned although mostly they are furry obstacles to any accomplishment.
