In our diverse classrooms and school communities, it is important we strive to understand and overcome biases so that we can better meet the needs of all students. Within the umbrella of LGBTQ , gender and sexual orientation are grouped together. This continues to perpetuate biases surrounding gender and sexuality. With the growing level of polarization surrounding these issues, how can we, as educators, better understand appropriate terminology, as well as provide a safe space for our students, their families, and our community? Join Megan Fuciarelli as she addresses this question and explores the misconceptions surrounding the LGBTQ community. She will share information as well as resources that can help you continue your efforts in your school and classroom. Come enhance your skills, gain a better awareness of those we serve, and walk away with resources to help unite your community.

This was one of the most informative webinars Iíve experienced thus far! This should be mandated training for the back to school inservices, as well as integrated into Pre-Service curriculum. Thank you for opening my eyes to LGBTQ issues!
