Episode Thirty-Three: Teaching A New Generation

Joined by Mrs. Lauren Lierman, this week's discussion is about teaching the new generation. Jason and Lauren share a conversation about what teaching LGBTQ+ youth is like and talk about the teacher's role in advocacy and ultimately ensuring the best learning environment for all students. As a cisgender teacher herself, Lauren is passionate about doing everything she can for the LGBTQ+ students in her music classes. Offering a new perspective and sharing more classroom experiences, this episode hopes to shed light on the complexity of creating change and obstacles that come along. It is not meant to be a how-to workshop or teaching training, but more an open conversation. Teachers have such an impact and can no longer encourage stereotypes or silence their students. We need teachers and administrators who understand their role in the fight for equality. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/allow-me-to-translate/message
