For our third episode, we hosted a roundtable discussion on teaching during the Trump presidency. But we also asked listeners to contribute their stories. We had such good submissions, and so many, that we decided to make it an episode on its own.
I think at the heart of what I work at as a teacher is how do I make sure that my students are best prepared to express themselves in the world around them. And in particular, how are they best prepared to be an educated voter and educated self-advocate and an educated person who’s going to be able to stand up for themselves in moments when necessary and stand up for folks who might not have the same resources as them.” -Katlin Sweeney
“Maybe they will realize that there are stories they can trust: they can trust their own stories.” -Shivaun Corry
“I think the most important thing that I can do in the classroom is to continually make sure that I show my students that we are here to talk about truth, to talk about justice, to talk about equity.” -Genevieve García de Müeller
