Conversations like this (about teachers personalizing classrooms and being allowed to share their interests and talk about their families) never fail to make me think about stories like this (regarding whether queer people are allowed to be “out” at work, especially in certain professions; you can easily imagine a similar story from a teacher’s perspective).
Being able to talk about your family at work is a privilege. We cannot have this conversation without having that conversation.
Thank you. This is hard to get across so succinctly.
