Special-education teacher wins recognition for multicultural book

New Jersey special-education English teacher Keith Kelly won a bronze medal from the Moonbeam Children Book Awards for his multicultural children's book, "Peace Comes to Ajani," in which a young boy who is black acts out as a bully after his father's death but finds peace with the help of a Korean man who teaches him taekwondo. "Everyone has dealt with a bully," Kelly said. "But there's something that made them the type of child they are." Jersey Journal (Hudson County, N.J.)
