As always, we have a wonderful cast of students from the LA County High School for the Arts( LACHSA). The students audition /interview for a spot in our service-learning class and then use their talent and training to help us train educators. Normally, these students are all theatre majors. But not this year! In addition to theatre students, we have students from Dance, Opera, Music, Cinematic Arts and Visual Arts. It makes for a very interesting group!!
The class is currently studying sexual orientation and how LGBT students experience school in K-12. We will watch the film about Jamie Nabozny Bullied next week and then we will see the Lee Hirsch documentary, Bully the week after. Both of these films are great resources for anyone who wants to learn about homophobic bullying in schools.
We started our first teacher trainings in October (trained 144 teachers over three sessions) and will continue throughout the year. We will keep you posted on the impact
We also had a little fun dressing up for Halloween! I hope our photos make you smile.
As always, thanks for supporting us!
