I support LGBTQ liberty guns bible Trump BBQ shirt am a school teacher in a place where openly supporting LGBTQ+ people is unacceptable and vocalizing that support would almost certainly get me fired. Instead of open support and discussion (which is impossible), I’m trying to focus on the small things that can make a big difference. The first big thing is to have a zero tolerance policy for hate speech from all students. The whole point is for your LGBTQ+ students to feel safe and valid in your classroom and that starts with removing hate.

The second thing is to avoid making any direction in my classroom that references gender. A lot of teachers have students sit ‘boy-girl-boy-girl’ or have ‘all the girls read paragraph one and all the boys read paragraph two’. I support LGBTQ liberty guns bible Trump BBQ shirt make it a point to never force my kids to publicly declare their gender identity. If I have to split up teams, I have them go by the color of their t-shirt/backpack/pencil/anything not related to their body or gender. Which brings me to my last point: I NEVER EVER comment on my student’s bodies or appearance. This seems like a given, but I put a blanket embargo on everything just to be safe. I never acknowledge a new hair cut or the style of a student’s attire.

I never say ‘that’s a pretty sweater’ or ‘lookin’ good- new haircut!’ I support LGBTQ liberty guns bible Trump BBQ shirt know many teachers use these kinds of benign comments to build rapport with their students, but I still avoid them. Kids that age often don’t have total control over their bodies and how they outwardly express themselves and I don’t want to pile on the shame or discomfort by drawing attention to it. Instead, I compliment my students on their skills and effort. The kids love hearing that I’ve noticed their hard work and I’m happy knowing there’s no risk of triggering anyone’s dysphoria or otherwise making them uncomfortable.
