The Grio - Homeschooling during the coronavirus crisis is a teachable moment, family says

March 23, 2020

The novel coronavirus pandemic has turned frantic parents into overwhelmed teachers as schools have been closed for the foreseeable future.

Homeschooling is not a task that they’re prepared for — finding resources to supplement assignments while working from home — and a reality they’ve found hard to adjust to.


These parents are not part of the parent-led education system that currently enrolls 2.5 million students nationally, according to The National Home Education Research Institute.

For William Schiltz and Dr. Myiesha Taylor, they could provide an everyday guide. Or even suggest the book, “The Homeschool Alternative,” which was co-written by Taylor and her 17-year-old daughter Haley Carolyn Taylor Schlitz.

Emergency Physician Myiesha Taylor Helps Promote Diversity with Doc McStuffins TV Character

October 15, 2017

Myiesha Taylor, MD, knows how rare it is to see a black female physician on television. As a black female emergency physician herself, she is frequently the only woman or person of color in her group. That’s why she was so excited to discover the Disney program Doc McStuffins when browsing shows for her 4-year-old daughter. Dottie, the show’s 6-year-old title character, emulates her physician mother by providing medical care to her toys. In fact, the show inspired Dr. Taylor to collect photographs of black female physicians into a collage titled “We Are Doc McStuffins”—an effort that eventually drew the attention of Disney executives.

Dr. Taylor, an emergency physician with Texas Health Resources and EmCare in Texas, recently sat down with ACEP Now’s Medical Editor in Chief Kevin Klauer, DO, EJD, FACEP, to discuss her relationship to Doc McStuffins and what she’s doing to raise the profile of women of color in medicine. Here are some highlights from their conversation.
