Teachers Need Healing Too, Chillin with Chaski

Chaski K’uychi Angulo

Too often schools focus on how to best support students experiencing trauma while completely missing the fact that many of their QTBIPOC teachers are struggling with their own personal trauma - in addition to the racial trauma they experience from their very school community. Teacher turnover rates have always been at an all time high - however, QTBIPOC teachers tend to be targeted for "political" reasons and more frequently pushed out of the classroom. This podcast centers the voices of QTBIPOC teachers who have been silenced, undervalued, and ultimately pushed out of their teaching environments. Chaski holds space for QTBIPOC teachers to speak their truths and create counter-narratives. Teachers need healing too and healing begins once we feel heard.
