TAMPA - Kids are enjoying their summer vacation right now, but for many teachers there is never a break.
Teachers often attend workshops this time of the year to learn more, and just the other day, an educator came into ABC Action News to talk about the unique work she is doing right now.
The book, "The World Must Know," is something that Tara Payor believes.
"Kids hear all the time, history just repeats itself, and this is a part of our very recent history that cannot repeat itself," said Payor.
The instructor at the University of South Florida, who teaches future teachers, wants to make sure that others know the history of the Holocaust.
"I take very serious my responsibility to prepare them and how they will responsibly teach the Holocaust to their students," Payor said.
Aside from reading, Payor is spending a chunk of her summer at The Memorial Library in New York.
During her fellowship, she will meet other educators and share teaching methods.
She will also talk to survivors of the Holocaust, and learn about genocides that are unfortunately happening right now.
"This isn't just I'm going away for two weeks and we're going to swap worksheets and come back and that is it," Payor said. "It's about deepening our understanding, being creative, thinking aloud together."
After the fellowship ends, the passionate educator, who is not Jewish, plans to pass on her knowledge to others when she returns to the Bay area.
Payor will be in New York until July 18.
