Whether you’re teaching in the classroom or through remote learning this school year, Ancestry® is providing free resources to inspire educators with new ways to engage students to make this school year a little easier.

Lifestyle journalist and author Amy E. Goodman partnered with Ancestry to write about her family’s experience using Ancestry and her tips for the upcoming school year.

“It’s back to school! This time of year reminds me of new school supplies, refreshed minds and a whole new perspective for the year to come!

With a first-generation Japanese American mother and a White Oregonian father, I spent my childhood saddling my parents’ physiology like a trickster cowboy: at times I looked more Japanese, other times my fair hair and light eyes had me mirroring my dad. People constantly questioned my ethnicity, and I spent lots of time on the playground dodging questions about my family history.
