Dallas Teacher, Staff Training Aims to Help LGBTQ Students
11/14/2018 7:05am

Dallas ISD is on a mission to make sure every student feels safe and respected at school and part of that is creating a culture that has resources for students who identify as LGBT.Just so students see they have the support of the district, Mahoganie Gaston with DISD said. They spend eight to 10 hours or longer of their day in our possession and we want them to know they are fully supported by the district 100 percent. Icy Roads Lead to Crashes in North Texas Overnight Recently nearly 50 teachers and other staff members attended day-long training about how to be better allies to LGBT students in schools. The program is called OUT for Safe Schools and the goal is to have trained allies in every high school in the school district.Genevieve Maye is one of the teachers who attended the training. She is not only a Chemistry teacher at Booker T. Washington High School, she is also a member of the LGBT community. Pilot Killed, 1 Hurt in Jet Crash at TX Air Force Base When I was in high school, I didnt have that support and to me I really needed that support, Maye said. Throughout my high school, I thought I was the only person who was going through this transition. I thought I was the only trans person that existed in the entire world.She and other staff members are trained to help handle issues facing students ranging from bullying, depression and alienation. SC18 Brings Leading Supercomputer Developers to Dallas If you need to come out here, if you need that support system, if you need someone to talk through what does this look like coming out to my parent or when Im at home, I dont feel safe being myself that they have allies in the schools who are here to support them, Gaston said.Thats what we are building here. We are allowing a safe place to be themselves, Maye said. Even if they cant be it at home they can at least be it here so they are not so depressed, they are not thinking about suicide they dont want to end their lives they actually want to start living their lives their way.The trained staff members will be visible and recognizable to students. Each will have a special identification badge saying they are part of the OUT for Safe School program.To make sure that they know that this person wearing this badge has their back, Maye said. No matter whats going on in their life or during their day they can come into our classroom or they can find someone with this badge and they will always have a safe person to talk to.Those who were trained will now be able to train the others in the district to keep the wave of support growing.For me honestly it gives me hope. It gives me hope for the future, Maye said. It helps me see and realize that these youth are going to have support and that they are going to have the ability to grow into adulthood.The Dallas Police Department and staff from the Dallas library system also attended the training because of their work with local youth.Photo Credit: NBC 5
