Chicago - The Coccinellidae are a family of small beetles that are commonly known as ladybirds. Their color varies from yellow, orange to scarlet with small black spots on their wings. These beetles represent a vivid childhood memory that I hold dear. A memory that is now an answer to a question I still share with many educators over what can ensure efficacy and productivity in our teaching choices. This memory took me back to 1996 and my hometown of Kenitra while also cultivating a passion for understanding and reforming our education system.
