What can teachers and counselors do to create and maintain positive, supportive classrooms where transgender and non-binary students can thrive? In this webinar, the third segment of MAEC’s “Thriving, Not Just Surviving” series, K-12 teachers and school counselors will share the practices, norms, and activities they bring to the classroom to support LGBTQIA+ students, especially trans and non-binary students.
