Ellen Knows Best

Last week I was watching the Ellen show and she made a comment in regards to the legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States. The message she is sending is one that also has a great deal of pertinence  towards teachers who are pushing the limits and fighting for what they believe in. . . “There have been moments in history when someone has had the courage to stand up for what they believe in and that one action changes everything” Ellen DeGeneres.

One thought on “Ellen Knows Best

  1. I love Ellen! I am taking another Spring class about sexual identities in the classroom. It’s quite sad hearing about all the discrimination and bullying kids face at such an early age because they are struggling with their own sexual and gender identity. As teachers, we must try and make all students feel welcome and encourage everyone to embrace and respect each other’s differences.
