I am a graduate of Charleston Southern University with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and History and currently am certificated in Elementary, Early Childhood, and Early Childhood Special Education. As a member of Learning for Justice, I am up-to-date on current issues and best teaching practices in order to align my classroom for the goal of to inform accurate details in a fun learning environment where children and youth feel respected, valued and welcome participants.

50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The approach of this class is historical and thus expresses no personal viewpoint or option from the facilitator; time is allotted at end of each session for any situations that may have need extra discussion or clarification.

The language used to describe people's identities matters but is difficult when applying terminology and constraints to past actions, situations and people; a Glossary of LBGTQ+ is sent upon registration at give everyone a common link of reference. This course does, however, acknowledges the fallibility of modern labeling to historical events and figures and will make no statement of anyone's gender or sexual preference unless historically documented.

The classroom environment itself is designed to reflect and honor diverse identities with time given to address and/or discuss any situations or clarification that may arise using the instructional strategies provided by the Learning for Justice's Teaching Tolerance toolbox (https://www.tolerance.org/classroom-resources/teaching-strategies). 

Information presented in the topics are "matured" themed and may be sensitive material for some learners. These include but are not limited to shifting cultural and societal norms (e.g., underlying prejudice and overt hate), discriminatory practices (e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia), and human rights violations (e.g., war crimes, genocide). Any pictures used to relate key concepts, vocabulary, timelines, and other information will be non-descriptive and taken from the Britannica (https://www.britannica.com/).
