Thank you for sharing your stories and being vulnerable with us! We have LGBTQ clubs, a Gay and Straight Alliance, many students transitioning and using chosen names and preferred pronouns. It has been challenging for many members of our rural community to accept and understand these kids and adults in our community. My students past and present know I am an ally and will always support them in being their authentic self! ๐Ÿ’š

While I've always had students with a range of gender identities, I found many more identifying vocally in our hybrid and online setting during the pandemic and worked to make my classes as safe and inclusive space. Some of my kids have the support of their parents, others really do not. I left last year for a fellowship and my most difficult emotion about leaving was around not being able to connect and check in with them as I had been.
Sandra Ovalles

Wendy, I am in the South. In NC, but at a residential high school where there is all types of diversity from across the state. We have teachers as well as students who have become transgender. We also have a support group called Spectrum for our LBTQ+ students and teachers. It also is in our strategic plan.

I proudly helped with a GoFundMe page for a former student needing gender confirmation surgery. But I would love to "change the system." I feel like I'm on my own at my school wanting to offer support. Students whisper to me that they or family members are part of LGBTQ+ community. Then, I invite them to join Art Club. I wish I had more support.

I teach 9th grade English. I pushed to include more diverse authors and view points.

In my classroom we have 2 promises, That you will be safe(emotionally, mentally, and physically) and that you will learn. As long as that is happening we will be okay. So we donโ€™t make people feel less than or make fun of them when they make mistakes, or tease them because English was not their first language, we will help each other. And I have more kids that are participating now because of the safe classroom.

By being an Ally in states where you canโ€™t say something is wearing and learning the colors.

We have to step further than the "safe classroom." These kids have adult problems in elementary school. It's not enough to just depend on the safe classroom anymore. We have to build real relationships with real talk, not pretending those things aren't there. We can't teach kids who are stressed out and thinking about other things. We have to have school districts who are willing to support teachers and their students and their problems. Concentrating on standardized tests and that's it isn't working any more.
