As a Corps Member Advisor for Teach For America’s Tulsa Institute, I led support for 8 Corps Members throughout their summer training. In addition, I created a training session introducing Corps Members to supporting LGBTQ students and creating welcoming environments.
The session, which I created from scratch after many conversations with leaders in the community, was presented as a pilot at Tulsa’s Institute. Ultimately, several hundred Corps Members were able to access the training, leaving them better prepared to support all students. This was an unprecedented feat within Teach For America, and I will be building upon this work this summer.
