An educator's classroom includes a diverse group of pupils, which will consist of LGBTQ+ students. Families of LGBTQ+ students expect and deserve a fair and safe learning environment for their children to learn. Educators know that in order for meaningful learning to take place, all students must feel safe and supported in the school community. This is especially true for students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, or are questioning their sexuality. Statewide legislation such as DASA and provisions under the federal law, Title IX do protect LGBTQ+ pupils, however, the true impact begins from a compassionate and informed educators that embrace SEL and cultivate brave learning spaces. As an advocate, an educator renders a tremendous difference on students who are struggling with their identities.
